I just realized I never posted the pictures of my work from the second semester of ceramics class... so I'm gonna fix that! ^_^
Plate, white clay, dripping shirohagi over black (OF), W.19.5cm H.2cm.
I made a dinner set using this design--four dinner plates, two dessert plates, four sushi plates, a saucer-like plate, a bowl and several cups. Fell in love with the look of it. ^_^
Bowls, white clay, slip decoration, sekkai (OF), W.14cm H.5.9cm.
I use these whenever I have cereal--the perfect size! Sensei and I joked that they are setto-ppoi, or "a set... ish". A good potter can make bowls very similar in shape and size, a master potter can make perfect copies. I on the other hand make stuff that's bascially a set, but doesn't stand up to scrutiny.
Jar, white clay, inside - shirohagi, outside - spraying kurotenmoku and shirohagi separately (RF), W.10cm H.11cm.
Bowl, red clay, pouring haiseiji inside after dipping irabo (RF), W.12.5cm H.8.2cm.
This bowl, destined for large servings of soup, broke en route to America. -_- All in all I lost one large rectangle plate and three bowls of various sizes... not too bad considering how much I sent back, but sad none the less. I took my most prized pieces--the dinner set, a teapot made by Sensei, and others, in my carry on.
