pot #50

Well...the second part of today's blog has to be about the piece I bought from Steven at his KC Clay Guild workshop yesterday. It is a 'yunomi'. What is the greatest thing about this piece is that I know *how* he made it...(wondering if I can apply a little of the technique of 'stretching' to my handbuilt slab work???)
This piece has been thrown, stretched and altered, thrown again, slipped, ribbed, slipped again, ribbed, trimmed, dried, glazed and single fired to ^6, electric.
By Steven's own admission, there are multiple glazes...sometimes up to seven...on each pot and I guess this one is no exception.
I am drinking coffee from it as I write this entry. Yummy.
