This is another carved BAYNES sound series carved #winecup. The mountains I see everyday and the rivers that flow into the ocean right here make the waters here the perfect environment for #fannybayoysters and oysters in general. This was #woodfired in an #anagama kiln. The white ornlighter shiny area is where the ash from the stoking wood first contacted the clay and then the flames licked and danced around the pot to the opposite side but no actual "head on collision" of ash. The soft cinnamon colour is called flashing and I love the story of the flame and fire that is told just by looking at this cup. Happy and sad to say this sweet cup has found a new home. Hard to let it go. I hope to make a few more for the next firing. Do you think I should make more carved BAYNES sound pots? Or… do you prefer the simple lines of an carved pot in the woodfire

Said goodbye to this #woodfired #winecup today. Off on an airplane with its new owner. I absolutely love how with #woodfiredpottery you can see the story of the slams as it travelled on and around then form. This is my #baynessound carved cup. I see the mountains across the pacific when I wake up – those are the peaks you see here, then … there are 7 rivers/streams that flow into BAYNES Sound which makes this area the perfectnplqce for oysters to grow #fannybayoysters. The carved lines down from the mountain top symbolizes the 7 waterways. I love this series. Got to make more I guess #corisandlerpottery You can find my work at #thepottersplacegallery in #courtenaybc or online through my website (in my profile)

I used to dread making handles. I can remember it like it was yesterday. They just never seemed to really be part of the pot but were more like something that just had to get stuck on to perform a function. I now enjoy making handles. I love when they are just right, the balance, the curves, the weight based on the mug etc. etc. etc. This mug although quite simple has a lot going on with the swirl riding up the pot like a barbers spiral, and the impression near the bottom and all that ash, sort of peppered on this side of the mug. #anagama firing over 3 days, cooled for 4 nights. #makersgunnamake#handsandhustle#canadianceramics#handtotable#craft#ceramics#courtenaybc #comoxvalley #weareyqq #hellobc #canadiancreatives #vancouverisland #pottersofinstagram #pottersofperiscope#art_we_inspire #craftsman ##shophandmade #handmadeisbetter #contemporarycraft#makersgunnamake#handsandhustle#canadianceramics#handtotable#craft#Ceramics
