Just finished this lamp. 3 yrs ago the parts to light this did not exist in the market. Very glad I waited. Base is a dial from an early turn off the century AM radio. The copper find above that are part of the tuning mechanism. Gas line pipe. And oil drip regulator and filter contain the main lights. Less than 1amp, 12v DC. At full brightness it's about the same as a 60w bulb.

Back or front... I can not decide which I like most. I like the back because it shows that greater variety afforded in a wood kiln, melted gooey ash on the hot face and toasted earth on the leeward side. But then there is the front to consider. An unglazed surface is covered with melted ash pooled slightly in the side where a heavy deposit collected. I can only imagine how deep that drift of ash was before it melted. It has a more subtle than intended inlaid porcelain slip decoration inside. When I first unload this piece I was just a little bit disappointed that the time spent decorating wasn’t more productive in the end. Looking at it after a weeks break I’m happy the way I have to look deeper to see everything. #woodfiring #woodfired #417land #madeinmissouri #americancraft #functionalart #arttouse #κεραμικά #bowl #saladbowl

What does one do the day after the settlement of Dumont v Gordon is announced and the state of Michigan bans discrimination against same-sex couples at state-funded child placement agencies? I wasn’t sure, so I volunteered at the Children’s Center this morning, providing childcare while foster parents received training (I’d already signed up a couple weeks ago, before they offered me a job and prior to knowing that the settlement was coming up). This afternoon I went to @pewabic_education
to keep working on lidded vessels. I trimmed through two lids, but I think these two that survived trimming came out better than last week’s! My brain understands the drop-in style lid with the flange on the pot more than an overhang style lid. This evening I’m hanging out with the cats and watching Will & Grace. So … today was pretty typical. Insert some stereotype about #lesbians
being boring homebodies. #pewabic @pewabic #potter #pewabicpottery #ceramicist #pottery #liddedvessel #liddedjar #art #artist #functionalart
