Full frontal new ditty

Heh, heh….

So I posted these images of new pots, the new songs I’m working on, sometime ago on my ‘Gallery’ page (link above), but maybe its worth sharing some images in the blog itself. Here goes:

And if you are in the Athens area this weekend you can check them out in person! My holiday sales resume on Saturday and run from 10am to 4pm on both days. It looks like rain, so I’m set up inside the studio where its nice and dry. 572 Nantahala ave, for those interested!




About Carter Gillies

I am an active potter and sometime pottery instructor who is fascinated by the philosophical side of making pots, teaching these skills, and issues of the artistic life in general. I seem to have a lot to say on this blog, but I don't insist that I'm right. I'm always trying to figure stuff out, and part of that involves admitting that I am almost always wrong in important ways. If you are up for it, please help me out by steering my thoughts in new and interesting directions. I always appreciate the challenge of learning what other people think.

    Excellent! Tea Dust, are they?

    • Thanks! I suppose its in that family. Its a cone six oxidation glaze that Alicia Claussen posted a few years back. She named it ‘Tenmoku’. I think it was in Ceramics Monthly some time ago too. A similar version is in John Britt;s new glaze book, I believe. The one I’m using is temperamental though…… But it sure looks great when it works!
