black pots! well, chocolatey




(pots by Gary Rith)
When I teach or simply hang around making pots at the Cornell University Pot Shop, I have a choice of different clay and glazes from the home studio. This summer I have used, for the first time in maybe 20 plus years, a brown clay and black glazes. It has been hard to get used to, because I am a white clay/bright glaze guy, but wicked good fun in the end.

Extending one's talents and challenging your abilities is always a good thing, Gary. As we can see from these pots.
