A cup of tea

A cup of tea in my favorite monkey mug!

This mug was made by my friend Phylis. I love her whimsical carving.

Salt Fire

Here is a picture of my latest salt fired pieces. The bowl is handbuild and made from Black Mountain clay. I didn't put any glaze on the piece. The salt becomes the glaze. It also has the "orange peel" effect.

The box was made at the box workshop mentioned in a previous post. I'm not sure what the clay is but it has alot of grog. The color is an ochre color. I hope to make more boxes; similar but with different lids.
