These are great! I particularly like the finish on the white one - very delicate. Where did you get them fired - did you have your own kiln?

best wishes

Thanks Sandra http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
i had them fired at a local university. i built a small wood burning kiln in my back yard and fire it a couple of times a summer.

I have not thrown any new pottery for a few years...sometimes i miss it..i will probably get back to it one of these days!

Your talent never ceases to amaze me Sue Ellen. And I love the colors....I have always liked grey and burgundy together. Please post more of your pottery http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

How in the world did I miss this? These are great Sue! I love the feel of pottery, the textures and those colors! Would love to do pottery, but cannot afford a kiln...looks like I'll have to stop by your house when you get the outdoors one going! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif:

Sue Ellen - beautiful pieces. I too yearn for the clay...a good red is darn hard to get!

Did hand-coiled vessels/pots, mostly raiku. Was doing two and three foot, what I was calling "funereal urns".Thinking of auditing a class at my old alma mater university just to have access to the humidity controlled wet room, plethora of glazes and the kilns.

Sue Ellen,
These are beautiful pieces. Love your work!!

I just started a taking pottery class a month ago and I am soooo hooked! We've been doing handbuilding up till last night, when we used the wheels for the first time. I come home from these classes feeling like a new person--there is something very wonderful that comes from getting your hands in the clay.
Once a week is just not enough--I'm already bugging my husband to build a wheel for me. He just loves these little projects... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/evilgrin.gif

Wanna be potter here. I love all of them but especially the one on the top far right. I have a love of Native American Potter and it reminds me of this. Do you like that Potter, God what's her name?? Tammy Garcia? I love her pieces.

These really are wonderful Sue ellen! I don't know why i didn't comment on them when you first posted them. I've seen quite a few pieces for sale at various art festivals that weren't nearly as nice as these and they were fetching really GOOD money! It seems to me that pottery is making a resurgence in the art world.

Beautiful work! I've not done any throwing, but have worked with clay, love the feel of it. We're in the process of having the house sold so if we can land a place that has some acreage, I hope to get hubby busy with building a kiln and a studio-- shhh, he doesn't know that yet http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif.

It is nice to see someone else does pottery. I have all the equipment but very little time to enjoy it.
Very nice work. I too, like the second piece. <FONT COLOR="Purple">Text</FONT c>

Oh My Goodness!
Sue Ellen these pieces are beautiful.
It has been quite awhile since I have thrown a pot, but none of mine ever looked as lovely as yours. :)
I love working in clay.

'Potters Wheel' John Denver

Take a little clay. Put it on the wheel.
Get a little hint how God must feel.
Give a little turn. Listen to it spin.
Make it in the shape you want it in.
Earth and water and wind conspire,
With heart and hands and love and fire.

hi sue ellen

I liked your pots, the white one especially has a lovely shape.

Just thought that I'd let you know that I work in a pottery. Not throwing (i'm crap at it) but hand painting it with glazes. It's a lot different to you're type of glazing. We paint things like landscape, seascape, poppy and fish. We also get the chance to do our own thing for exhibitions. Iv'e got my own mug with stars and aliens on it.
