Hot Pot

A new little pot, just about 5" high. The image below is of the piece before it was fired, with a lot of nice texture showing. Here is The Teaching Moment:
Do you want your texture to show?
Then don't cover it up with a thick glaze.

I like the pot anyway and am working on other pieces that are similar.

Both the glaze and the clay for this pot were High-Fire. This means the piece has to be fired at a high temperature, Cone 10, which means "Very Hot".

I really like this chunky little pot. Scarab beetles come to mind.
