A Pox On The Devil


 Raku Fired Stoneware.
#150 of the last 1000 Major Jugs By a lifetime Potter/Sculptor.

This old Devil has a helluva complexion. The glaze on his head was supposed to be a smooth red but it took one look at his hateful demeanor and cratered like lava. I'll bet that I can never get that effect again . His head lifts off and is a giant stopper. This jug is quite tall (18"). His teeth are made of small nails that are set in the clay before firing.

Raku Rumble

Spent a great weekend, with old and new friends, making lots of smoke and fire at The Raku Rumble during the Dia de los Muertos Festival and Fall Art Walk in Denison Texas. It was great fun. Thanks to our gracious hosts at The Denison Arts Council and all the volunteers who made it happen.

Glazing pieces to fire at "Raku Rumble" in Denison Texas tomorrow (Nov. 3). I have been a potter for more than 40 years and glazing is still my least favorite activity.

Sweet Potato Pi.

Cathy successfully converted my Sweet Potato Pi to Sweet Potato PIE. Delicious, no matter how you do the math.
