Wheel-thrown Teapot Set with 2 Wheel-thrown Mugs Tan Brown Red
Originally uploaded by jmnpottery.
After the first firing, I glazed each of the mugs with a light tan glaze. I overlapped the tan with a dark red and white. The results are very cool. The red at the top turned a bit brown and the white over top gave all of the pieces a textured flowing cap.
The teapot was glazed in the same colors, the inside of the teapot is glazed with a dark red with gold flows.
Teapot holds just under 2 cups. Enough to fill both of the mugs :)
Each mug holds 8 oz.

The lid can only be shut where the tail meets on the bottom half.
After bisque firing the dish , I glazed the entire outside of the pice in a Tropical Feathers glaze. Light green to dark green underglaze almost completely covered in a white crystal with blue, green and turquiose in the middle. The glaze is really awesome, but hard to photograph :)
The inside bottom of the dish was glazed with an icy black, the top inside was left unglazed.

After the first firing, I glazed the mug using 3 different colors. The ending results are awesome, I just wish the textured flows showed up better in the pics!
The final glaze color is a creamy brown with blue, yellow, cream, green and royal blue crystals. The drips result in a flow of brown,teal,purple and green
This mug holds (1 1/4 cup) 9 oz of your favorite beverage.

After bisque firing, I glazed the entire bowl with a night sky glaze. Very dark, dark blue with white crystals that speckle the entire surface. The inside of the bowl was recoated with a watered down glaze. It lightened the blue glaze on the inside, giving it more depth.
This bowl holds 11 1/2 cups!

I have been making tons of bowls lately. I just took these out of the kiln, and they turned out great. I have been testing tons of new glaze combos and different techniques, all and all I'm just having fun :D
My Etsy shop is picking up and bringing in a lot of custom orders.
I have also been working on my website www.jmnpottery.com .
