Brown Pots
February 4, 2015

I took a little break from porcelain in January and made some pots with brown clay, a Standard body, Dark Brown #266, I purchased at Bracker’s Good Earth Clays in Lawrence, KS. Here are a few of the results…

I left the brown clay exposed on the forms in some places, the rim…

This is a small coffee pour-over set. (Fareed, you have dibs on this set but I’m not satisfied with the liner glaze. Also, I’ll make the hole in the bottom of the filter a tad bigger. I’ve already thrown another set and will send you a photo when it’s finished.)
But this is a handsome little set and I think I’ll keep making them. It’s a handy dandy way to make a quick cuppa coffee at home or work…

For now though, it’s back to work with porcelain, my fickle mistress and true love…
