Some pots

I collect rare plants and last year started making my own containers to show them off. I've experimented with glazing, unglazed, oxide stains. Here are a few examples, and more in the album.

Caudex1, Those are great. What are they made out of. I'm at work and can't enlarge them or get to your album.

RE: Some pots

Thank you wyn and lady!

There are made of clay ;0) Sorry, couldn't resist.

The 1st one was made from scraps, just rolled into balls and started stacking. A stain was used to enhance the textures.

The 2nd one I used another layer of clay to mount the feet on, then stained it dark.

The 3rd one I was able to salvage after it cracked while I was making it, then I cracked it more to give it some balance. Used a crawl glaze on the base.

The 4th I used black lava glaze.

Just got a treadle style pottery wheel last week, wasted about 10lbs of clay attempting to center on the wheelhead.

RE: latest creation

Finished this a couple of days ago, used 25lbs of clay to form this deep container. Now it has to dry, my guess it will take about a month for to completely dry.

RE: Some pots

Thanks for sharing! However I can't see any of the details--would you mind making your photos a bit larger?

I just bought some equipment and hope to start throwing and hand-building pots by next year. Right now I'm finishing up a class at our local art museum.
