Latest Pottery Haul

I’m still making pottery and loving it! Here are some of my latest pieces. I’ve been trying all sorts of different things—marbling clay, carving patterns, making stamps to add texture, experimenting with glazes, Sgraffito, etc… All these pieces are hand-built with my trusty rolling pin and a few other tools—no wheel throwing for me. I can’t seem to make enough mugs and planters!

I’m starting to get a feel for my personal aesthetic when it comes to ceramics, and it’s really exciting! I definitely want to keep it as a hobby for now, but thank you SO much to those of you who’ve asked about buying my pots. You’re such an encouragement!

    Love these! Especially that dark piece with the triangles :) this makes me want to get back into my pottery! In fact, somewhere I have a box of pieces that I never fired and they’ve been moved across state lines and back :/ I should see if they’re even salvageable, or if I need to throw them in some water and turn them back to clay haha.

      Yes! They should be salvageable one way or another. ;) Hopefully you can fire them!

      Thanks! I’m not sure the specific details about the clay I use, since I buy it at the local pottery studio. They just call it “speckled brown”.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
