squared....

Squaring off a freshly made round pot is a nice variation...and something I seem to have been in the mood for last week! (in the mood for other things this week, of course...)

I really love these flower pots.  Came out unexpectedly wonderful.  The wife asked for a pair of them and I imagined they would look just so, and I wanted to make a certain dish for them too, and wow! Just as I hoped, or better than.... I want to make more little dishes like those cute ruffly things there....


Was thinking about a squared mug and trying the glaze scheme on the mug below.  It worked out well. One thing I have noticed over the years is people do not like the look of a squared mug rim, but the base can be squared.....

remember when being called "square" was derogatory? How about being "four square"? Your pottery square=ness is the best!

I like those square bowls, I bet the small one fits nicely in your hand.

No one would ever call you square, Gary...
