at home I can only fire earthenware clays, but at the community college it’s all stoneware ... and we can do reduction as well! this handbuilt box with lid, and small curved double vase, were both fired in reduction with this lovely very dark stoneware clay and it is my absolute favorite glaze! looking inside the box the turquoise color is simply glorious, seems to draw one in. I placed the lid askew on purpose.

I love the glaze on the box. It reminds me of the glaze on a small square vase made for me by a friend when we were in our twenties. I thought it was clay, but never asked. I wonder if I have it in one of the many boxes I need to go through. Both pieces are fabulous.

thank you for the lovely compliment, I’m glad you liked them so much. I’m a handbuilder, with no aspirations to be a wheelthrower. I’m planning to make a much larger version of the curvy small vase soon, it will be about a foot tall.


They are fantastic!
