I had made 4 bodies but two of them worked better as jars instead of teapots.
I felt the mouth opening was wider then I wanted to put spouts and handles on.
Those were carved and set aside to dry.
For the first time I have done them they are okay.
I see room for improvement , of course, but might be tempted to try these again.
BUT!---I have painted myself in a corner by using the cone 6 clay instead of our stoneware clay.
What corner you say?
Well, I would usually make these from our stoneware body, glaze them in our wood ash glazes and then fire to cone 10, reduction..
Now I am wondering how to glaze these in the glazes I used while working on the tiles...
Seems I need to think about this and give myself a deadline!
Shoot! I hate that thinking thing.
The 2 10 cubic foot ones are still here.
If you are interested or know someone who is interested pop us an email.
And I am reading all your blogs seems my mind is wandering on the comments.
My mind is still in a winter slumber and a jumble of thoughts.
More on that later.
