This year's pots

I haven’t made many pots since my return from India last year, but I am slowly warming up to the idea. The green glaze stoneware round pot (250×65 mm) shown above was inspired by the traditional form of South Indian terracotta flower pots shown above as well. I made it for a bonsai friend in India.

Two pots in the photos below have white glazes on them, but not all turned white. The top pot in the image below is round (185×60 mm). Its white glaze produced interesting streaks of brown. The bottom pot is oval (280×215×45 mm). Its clay had such high iron oxide content that took all the whiteness out of the white glaze.
