front and back!!!!!!!




(jade glaze looks good on the front of these tests, AWFUL and streaky on the back, plus Penny and Buster front to back or whatever)
Tink's word challenge for the week is 'front and back'. I have been working on a new glaze recipe and this was an example of jade which would look good in some spots, TERRIBLE in others, but if you read below, you'll see how I made a perfect NEW glaze!
Plus, of course, doglets on the couch...

Wow, that right one doesn't exactly the same on both sides. How do you do that? I can't even hang a picture straight!

Hi Gary! Thanks for visiting my blog. Love the humor in your work! And your dogs... Mine is with me in the studio all the time. People actually come to visit her instead of me or the pots!

Janet said...

You work is so nice....very pretty. I think my friend, farmer's wife, has some of your stuff that i've seen.

Tink said...

Holy cow. How do I function? My comment didn't even make any sense! I'm glad you knew what I meant Gary. *Snort*

is that a subliminal peace sign in belly of the lower left vase?

Karen said...

I like the glaze, even if it's not even. Shh, don't tell anyone and they'll never realize it wasn't MEANT to be that way.
And of course I love Penny and Buster. Who doesn't love puppy love?

Whoops forgot to tell you I posted the banana cookie recipe in my comments for you. :-)

Reb said...

That will be a beautiful glaze once you have the kinks out Gary. I like the streaks on the left bottom vase.

Great shot of the dogs!

Susan as herself said...

I dunno---I like the crazy streaks. Almost looks like a tie-dyed pot.

I like streaky, I do streaky a lot, it's my response to the tidiness of industrial pottery - keep it streaky!

Cool pots, a lot of fun, you must be smiling a lot when you're making them.
Best wishes from England

Way to POT! I mean, Potter...um, glaze? LOL!!

Great pics!

Chatty said...

very pretty glaze, Gary. And Penny and Toot must have the same chiropractor, or maybe it's a new Yoga stretch...; )

Beautiful color in that glaze. It's such a cool shade. Great WWC! It's like the glaze knew it shouldn't be perfect on both sides :-)
