Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

This evening I set about to turn the plain flower pots I threw yesterday
into more decorative flower pots with a LOT of stamping & rim fluting.
Some with some traditional stamping, and more with the newer, “bulgier” stamping
with fluted rims. A mix of old & new styles… still not sure how I’m going to glaze these?

Tomorrow I hope to trim them all and paint some slip accents.
And don’t forget to punch the drainage holes too!

Really, really lovely. I’d love to see some process shots between the just thrown pots and the exquisite completed pieces here. Get someone in to get shots of you at work!

PAM – That would be a great idea… you volunteering?!
It’s always tough as I get kind of excited when I’m stamping & texturing… and then forget to take pictures until I’m done?! I’ll try to remember next time. Thanks for the reminder!

I’ve been checking out all your post on stamping, I like the effect and yours are very cool. I ordered Kieffer’s DVD last week.

Your motto should be “Throw 50 lbs or Stay Home.”

Love the new motto… I think I may need to get some T-shirts printed up!!! Thanks.
