The last few weeks I started working on pieces for my kitchen. The top photo is of items for my new tea/coffee caddy. The tall piece is for the caramel flavoring my son likes in his coffee. The hummingbird piece is for the tea bags. The small piece is for sweet and low. Notice that I used my new stamps. I already had a sugar jar that's bisqued and I also made a caddy to hold it all.
The bottom photo is of my canister set. Of course this is my first time making lids for square containers so hopefully they fire well. I also made a salt and pepper set and still need to make a utensil holder but I may decide on that latter.
I would like to use up my white clay in the next month and switch to brown clay. I think that the color showing through would look good with all the texture in my new work. There is a bunch of scrap clay that I need to re-wedge and I will probably make a bunch of small items to fill the kiln so that I can test some new glazes.
