They are cracked.
How can you sell them?
Flat pottery such as dishes, platters and tiles crack easily in a pit fire. And those cracks are as important as the colors the surface treatments and flame put on the little dish. They record the process. They record the stress that dish was placed under. They record the flame. It could be a metaphor for our life.
No fear. They will not break apart. You won’t wash them. They will sit and offer you a moment of beauty on your table, desk or wall.
What do I do with them?
On your table, dresser, desk.
As a business card holder, ring holder, small stones or shells, treasures, wrapped candies.
Why did you make them?
We noticed that our big platters and vases were, well, big.
And we like small sweet pots as well as the dramatic showy pots.
It’s fun to explore the different kinds of surfaces and shapes with the pit fire process.
So, I guess we made them for us, too.
