And that is what they are: experiments. I spent the summer trying different hand building techniques and seeing what I could do with white porcelain. I threw a lot of what I made away mostly because of mishaps during the glaze firing. And I made a few pounds of unglazed beads, pendants and trinkets that are colored with Mason stains. Those will get a ride in the rock tumbler which should give them a smooth, shiny satin finish. I also made a few bead trees so I can make glazed beads. So, here is what I ended up with:
Some bangles (I wish I had made more of these) some nerikomi dishes, one mug, a platter with a feathered slip design, and two mid-century modern-looking vases that I will find good homes for.
