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

This morning I stamped & stamped & stamped… and stamped some more.
Round & round I went stamping the inner rings AND the outer rings!

Now they’re all stamped and laid out on a plastic grid to help them dry more evenly… and hopefully prevent them from warping. The idea is that they can dry from both sides at the same time – hence the lack of warping!

SHAWNA – They’re going to be the “top” part of some new ikebana vases for Spring!

I thought they looked like the discs that people used to put around light fixtures and chandeliers! Nice work Gary!

Are you r ikebana vases going to be thrown or handmade? Your clay on all your projects looks so smooth. Why? Lack of grog, is it stoneware, secret for handling????
