Tooth vessel no. 1

I am making a series of tooth vessels that will contain handwoven nests of different (significant) materials.

I got my first glaze fired pieces back yesterday, and I’m so pleased. Glazing is mysterious and magical right now (reminiscent of making a lithograph for the first time). I think I will approach my next pieces with a “less is more” attitude in the glazing department; these ones are glazed waaay too heavily and colorfully. I want the beauty of the clay to come through. Perhaps just clear with a little bit of color within the teeth to emphasize the recessed areas?

Regardless, I’m so happy to be learning something new that satisfies a lot of needs: to work with my hands, to work in a community, to create things that are both functional and thought-provoking.
