Relatively Successful Experiment…

Here’s a couple bowls that show my attempts at something a bit different. They looked alright after the bisque but I wasn’t sure how they would be after the firing. They are similar in color but they are actually two different glazes, one a little greener (or one a little bluer). Tonight is the first meeting of Club 52. I have 3 friends and with me it makes 4 of us who all went to Murray State University together, majoring in art, from 1977 to 1982 (roughly). We are all the same age and we meet to have beer on each others’ birthdays 4 times a year. As of yesterday we were all 51 and my buddy Al’s birthday is today and he’s 52 so Club 51 becomes Club 52… how quaint. Al’s blog is about the Falls Of The Ohio and I’ve linked to it before… it’s here. Anyway, here’s some pots…

Lower angle (or as they say in the south, “hangle”) to get a better idea of the pattern…

    Lovely! I like the patterns and how the glaze is breaking a little on the rims of the top 2. Really nice!

    Gorgeous bowls! They certainly made their successful way through the glaze firing!
