Tall vase workshop at Starworks

Here are some images from the tall vase workshop today, presented by Jeffrey Dean of Dean and Martin Pottery. Starworks, maker of the best clays I've ever used, was the host. I had a blast, and learned a LOT!!!

play time

I'm revisiting an old teabowl shape I used to make back in the 90's. I'm thinking about some white shino with oribe, temmoku with temple orange, that kind of thing. 

old school vibe

I threw what will become soup mugs today, and trimmed and handled small baking dishes I threw yesterday. They are very similar, so far, to the pots I made 20+ years ago, except for the glazes, which will be all new school :-)
