Slipping Up

Well yesterday's canister slipped up nicely. The design seems to be working to hide the join marks that were left behind in throwing the stacks. The marks that are really obvious, are gouges left behind by my rib. At the time, I felt that they added a certain something in full daylight, but now I'm having second thoughts. I like leaving in a good amount of surface scumble (did I just make that word-up?) to help add depth to the final glazed surface, but it's a bit hit and miss.

Looks great to me! I always enjoy watching your videos and browsing your products. Interesting stuff! Came across your Blue Dream video somewhere unexpected the other day... now can't remember where it was. Oh well...
Post pics of the garden work!

Have this week off, planning on some slab and coil work and a good pit fire. Drop me a line with answer to the emails I sent... anxious to hear about the availability of the cup I mentioned.

Or- like finger prints- they are just there.

Scumble is a good word. I'll pass it on. :)

scumble it is and it's apropos... onomatopoetic it is. i love the form, especially the bottom 2 inches is perfect and gives it something to stand on... like a built in plinth
