Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: process, production, studio

Last night, after my IRS audit and incredibly yummy “lunch”…
I wedged up a bunch of small balls of clay. Each of them 3/4 of a pound.
And then started throwing them all. On the wheel that is… not against the wall…

They all kind of look like cupcakes at this point?! But I’m hoping that after some stamping, detailing & trimming, these might become even cooler. Maybe even cool enough to become salt & pepper shakers?!

Hello!
I’ve been following your work for quite some time now, but I’ve never said hello, until now. ๐Ÿ™‚

I just want to tell you that I get inspired by your work, how you alter your bowls and not to mention your stamping…

I’m secretly dreaming of daring to try some stamping one day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers from Sweden!

I was almost thinking cool, retro cocktail shakers!
Salt and pepper works, though! ๐Ÿ™‚
