So happy :)
One of my pig sculptures will be going and I'm working on some planter pots...
Given that here in Oz our plant pots mostly stay outside all year I decided to use a clay that will take the changes in temperature. While my place rarely gets a frost being not too far from the sea, who knows where their new home may be?
So that meant some reclaiming of a suitable clay. A stoneware with grog... crumbs of pre-fired clay mixed through the raw clay.
|reclaiming clay for pots|
I had enough clay to make three pots... they have been trimmed now and look promising.
|the saucer is thrown at the same time as the bowl of the pot|
|This one has a different shape but still the all in one saucer|
|No saucer with this one|
they are now going to be left to slowly dry to leather hard stage when I will decorate them...
So far so good...
