Brown Stoneware Meets Beautiful Glazes

The last month I have been working with brown stoneware, after several tries last year of working with it an not getting good results I talked to a friend who is a potter and he gave me some pointers to alter the clay.  And viola' it worked!  Here are some of the pieces that I made, any set can be recreated if you are interested, as some of them sold already.

Quilted Flower

I also played with the best glazes to use and I am in love with these colors!
A little shinny, a little rustic and a lot of beautiful pieces!
I could just switch to working with these two glazes and clay for ever.

What do you think?  I'd love to hear your feedback please.

Stringing Magazine Feature

Earlier in the year I submitted a couple pieces to Stringing Magazine Fall 2012 for their Ultimate Guide Shopping Section, one was chosen and it was great to see it in the magazine!

The pendan featured is the one above, I took several pictures of the actual magazine page and it just didn't come out good, which I came to the conclusion that the resolution in the magazine was not the best.  So I found a picture I had from before.  This is a porcelain pendant of a heart with thorns glazed in several colors, and each color takes three coats.  Lots of work.   I also have the one below available in my etsy store.
