Pots series 4 - Brown or Blue

For my fourth series of pots, I aimed at being more 'daring' with the glazing. This ended up meaning that I used darker glazes. And again, I did not get the effect I was aiming for. This being said, I think I'm getting better at throwing interesting shapes.

2 x brownish-black glaze 2 x Owen blue and a rather thin stripe of red

I love the stunning blue on the inside ; shame it did not behave similarly outside...

Pots series 3 - An iron belt

This is my third series of pots. They are painstakingly getting a bit bigger.
Glazing is still the part where I feel the least confident, hence I'm making lots of pots in the same design... 
Also, I'm learning to throw lids!

2 x glossy white, 2 x glossy turquoise, and a thick band of iron oxide (which bubbled)
2 x matt turquoise - I love the speckles!
