Busy pinching

Tiny pinch pots were my thing this week. Seeing these mini pinch pots together reminds me of lichen spore bodies (as shown - not very well -  in this earlier post). Starting to get some glazing done too... so hopefully will have some images of finished works some time soon.
A collection of mini pinch pots. 


  1. Cute! (Put some pingpong balls inside to be the loaded spores??) That yellow stain you showed a while back would be a perfect licheny colour...

    1. aah, sadly that awesome yellow was not so special after glaze firing... looked very much like iron oxide really. I'm still hopeful it might behave differently mixed into a glaze rather than used as a slip, but I suspect the handwritten label that said 'ochre' meant it was real natural ochre earth and not ochre coloured stain powder as I had originally assumed!
