some more celadon

As you can tell from some of the comments, Wolf is not a fan of the celadon glaze I chose for the most recent group of pieces I made...  I, on the other hand, think it's one of those glazes that is a lovely canvas.  Francine uses the celadons for most of her stuff and does a great deal of embellishment.  I'm not one to adorn the piece as much as use the piece for the right thing.  For instance, a vase is meant to hold flowers, I like them simple so that they cooperate with the flower to make a pretty combination.  Peonies are my fave flower and I really think they ae lovely with the blue green of the vase.

Here are some photos of my latest stuff...




 All this and a big Happy Birthday to Louie today!

I think they are lovely, Glen. The glaze suits the beauty of a peony. Lovely

I am a fan of the glaze....when it's on stoneware :) Even I'll admit that the glaze looks a lot better with the Peonies

What's wrong with the glaze? I think it looks great!

Tell Louie I said Happy Birthday...

Simply beautiful, celadon is my favorite glaze. Elaine Coleman's work wouldn't be nearly as effective if it weren't for the celadons Tom mixes for her.

Happy birthday to Louie indeed!! ;o)
