New Cherry Vases

I've been playing again...after throwing so many pots on my pottery wheel, I needed a change. Using slabs of clay and some giant paper tubes from work, I created some new forms. Because they were so new to me, I felt I couldn't do the same old glaze pattern. Leaving the clay exposed is somethig I have done in the past with mixed results....scumming from impurites in the body. (Unbelievably frustrating, but Amaco's cinnamon underglaze covers a million sins!) This time around the clay is as red as my face without sunscreen in July. I love the contrast of the white and black with the red clay and the red cherries. Sometimes it's good to get bored...
