I've taken pottery recently in school and done better than the other students. these are my best pieces from first semester after building dumb pinch-pots and hand-built pieces.

i'm working on some other harder forms now but haven't been too successful with the glazing.

anyways just some c&c would be nice, even if it's not the right forum. It's an art forum right? haha. this is probably the most relaxing activity on the face of the earth. and i love the tangibility of it. I feel mroe alive doing this than drawing.

i mean general critiques: i didn't get hard edges on the inside of the rims, diversity forms (working on it now. I can throw two-foot cylinders now but don't have anything to show for it). Glazes - can't do much about that, we're pretty much limited at school and the teacher buys the cheapest glazes he can.

Never having done anything with pottery myself, I can't really offer any useful criticism. But those pieces look really nice. You may have a way to go, as you say, but it definitely looks like you've made a good start.

I'm guessing the bowls were done on a wheel, right? How about the cup in the last photo? What technique did you use for that? It doesn't look like it was thrown...

Anyway, your pieces have a solid, earthy feel to them. Nice work.

Not being a potter, I can`t get techie with ya, but I like them. Is the first one a trivot ? I especially like the cup and saucer. They look like they are made to be used, rather than displayed. Keep with it.




<edit> Hey rude, let`s see some of yours.</edit>
