Edging my way into my wife''s kiln

Post  Jim Doiron on Sun May 17, 2009 11:22 pm

Hello, I wanted to post a few pots (new and old) from my wife's kiln. I have finally managed to get her to start making me pots with regularity and she now throws kusamono pots to fill voids in her kiln so it's a win/win! She dosen't currently have access to a gas kiln but hopefully again soon. I also posted a few filled pots here:

Hello Jim,

I hope for you that your source never run dry and you always have such beautiful pots. Laughing
My Favorite No. 2 is very beautiful green.

Best regards

Thanks Peter, I also like that one the most. That green could not be better IMHO. My wife yearns for a gas kiln someday but every time I see this pot I have the same feeling.

Jim, nice pots.

I like the third accent piece. You have a nice complementary color scheme that works well here.

I too share your lust for a gas kiln. I'm still 8 years out on that wish! Rolling Eyes

Thanks for sharing.

My pottery started the same way Jim, now I've edged her out I love you

We have a schedule now who gets to fire what when, we also have smaller kiln so if I have small stuff or testers I can use that without issue. She just uses the large one.

This is may favorite


Met a fellow potter recently that has 2 gas kilns, he offered their use to me for a fee. If I can fill the16 cubic foot one he'll charge me $75. Now I just need to purchase some high fire clay and get muddy.
