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

Thrown one night. Stamped the next. Sure, they were a little squishier than I would normally like, but I had to keep them moving forward as I’m kind of rushing to get everything done. I’ve got another bisque kiln in a few days, and then my soda kiln a week from tomorrow. So I’m trying to rush a few last pieces through the process to get these bowls into both kilns… and done in time for my Holiday Home Show which is two weeks from this weekend!

Bowl #1 –

Bowl #2 –

Bowl #3 –

Bowl #4 –

Bowl #5 –

Bowl #6 – Somehow I forgot to photograph this one before I stamped.
Suddenly it was just done?!

Following your work has encouraged me to make my own stamps…being a relatively newby to pottery, I didn’t think it was something I could accomplish but because of you I did it! Love, love, love your work – since I live in FL, I can only follow on FB…thank you for sharing all that you do!

PATSI – Thanks for checking in on my blog. And good luck with your stamping endeavors. When you get some finished pieces, send me a few photos. I’d love to see them!

Hi Gary, just wanted to mention how much I love your blog. I’m new to ceramics, and it’s fun to watch all of your projects throughout the entire process. Also, I totally dig your sunrise photos. 🙂
