Half moon vessels

Throwing large forms with half moon shape. The vessels are embedded with bushcombings in the throwing.
Bush combings are soaked in iron oxide and yellow glaze stain and thrown onto the pot after it has been pulled up twice.

*The half moons slumped during firing and are sitting very heavily on their bottoms. I like a pot that rises from the table. Analyzing Lucie Rie's shapes, her pots come off the table on a slight soft foot with a strong impulse upwards before bellying out.
