I was inspired by a lot of the wall hangings that are made from metal and used for decoration.
I am not happy with the out come of this piece, due to the fact that not every piece is centered and facing the correct way.
During the project, I noticed that the piece was getting too flimsy and I don't know if it will function as a wall piece so I still have not decided whether or not I will make it work as a wall piece or transform it into something else, such as a table. I also have to decide what color i would like to paint my piece because I do not like the rust that is on the metal.

I am happy with the results, I especially like the lines made by the porcelain slip because it allowed the glaze to pool into the lines, creating various contast in the deepness of the colors.
This was photographed and sent into scholastics, where it will be judged and hopefully accepted into the show within Colorado and possibly sent into the national show.
I was inspired by Matt Long and his use of procelain slip within his work. In future times, I would like to create a platter that is larger in size.
These cups are fired to ^10 reduction with Alegheny Meadow's Haynes Satin White and Matt Long's Green Celedon on the inside of the mugs.
I am somewhat upset with the outcome of the cups because the glaze was applied the wrong way and has many different heavily applicated spots, along with spots with little glaze.
This project helped me in creating mug forms that are closley related or the same and learning the process on how to pull handles. I am glad I learned this process because I can then take my skills learned from this project and more effectively create similar forms to be united as a set.

These two photos are the bowls that I have been working on and it feels to me that the lines give this set unity because of their simitarities. These bowls are glazed with Gold Luster Shino at ^10. I am very happy with this piece bacause of the glaze quality and the unity that brings the piece together.
This is the largest platter that I have made so far and it turned out great! I am very happy with the glaze quality, green celedon and Tenmoku. This piece is one of my best platters yet due to its size and glaze quality.
This platter is glazed with penn state shino with black stain. I love the glaze on this piece. It turned out great. This is just how I wanted it to look like. I love the line in this piece because it adds emphasis to the platter.

This platter got an 'honorable mention' award in the most recent show that these pieces got sent to.
I also have many pictures of platters that are ready to be glazed and will be fired in the gas kiln within the next week or so...
