Vases and a plate

Today I unloaded the kiln and here are a few of the pieces.  The vase on the left was thrown a while ago but I just didn't know how to glaze it.  I like how the carving shows up well with the green sprayed on.  The vase on the right I used the spiral stamp I made after seeing it at the Potters Conference.  I stamped the pattern on four sides  The plate features the technique learned at the Claymatters Winter Workshop, with the grooving around the rim. 

I will finish sanding the bottoms, inventory, price and pack up for the 15th Annual Black Mountain Arts and Crafts festival coming up this weekend.  This is a new show for me so I hope it is busy.  We will stay at our cabin in Bat Cave.  I have started looking into shows near there so that we can enjoy the cabin while not having to pay for a hotel.  To see what else we have been doing while at the cabin, check out out cabin blog.

Be sure to "like" the New Day Pottery Facebook page to stay informed about all that is going on in the Studio
