I’ve been learning a little ceramics lately, pretty tough, take my hat off to those that work in this area. Starting with pinch pots, then slab work, trying out under glaze, glazes, oxides and so on. I just love when things are glazed such surprising results. It’s best not to have a fixed idea in mind that’s for sure. It’s all about serendipity. Next attempting to make a tea pot . . .as usual i’m thinking i’d love my own kiln . . . NO! Says husband.
