Sugar and Creamer. Porcelain, wheel thrown and altered, cone 10 reduction.

 This set was thrown on the wheel and then altered. The tray was thrown as a disc and stretched. It was then fit into the mold with two round bisque weight to define the sitting places for sugar and creamer, and the rim was shaped. The sugar was thrown as a closed form and the lid was cut out at the leatherhard stage.

Red stoneware; 7.5″h, 4″w, 4’d; thrown, altered and carved; cone 10 reduction.

This piece was thrown and the slab legs/sides were added. Then the walls were carved. The lid is slab built. I saw a similar design in a gallery and wanted to recreate it. It was fun to make, except the slab work takes too long. This jar had a little fat brother but its leg exploded during the bisque firing because the venting hole I made was too small. The surface treatment is iron oxide and Shino.

 There are actually six of them in this set. And here is the big momma:

Red stoneware, ~8.5d, 4.5″h. Layered glazes, paper resist, cone 10 reduction.

Originally it was supposed to be a pasta serving set… but also works well for salad.
