Still catching up on last year's pottery

I'm getting there!

I found these vases quite complicated to make, but I love their look!

This pot was part of a misfired kiln load. It has some flaws and even a little crack, but considering the circumstances it turned out quite nice. For some reason it's one of my favourites.

I used glass in these dishes and obviously I should have been a bit more generous with it in the flower dish. Maybe I try to fire it again at some point.

Wonderful! It makes me wanna take some pottery lessons, probably when the summer's over. Your work is really amazing.

Thank you so much! You should definitely try it! It can be frustrating sometimes but it feels great to make something with your own hands out of a lump of clay.

(Is there any chance I can take a look at your blog? The link of your name just leads to a non-public profile page.)

There's a link to my blog, I hope it works:
Though it's shame because I write in my native language. Maybe someday I'll write in english.

Thanks for the link! I like what I see in your blog! It's not a shame at all to write in your native language. (And I have a soft spot for Slavic languages, although I don't understand most of what you write.) I often think I should rather write in German than English because I realise I feel a bit inhibited and scared to make mistakes writing in English but then again I started to write in English to practise the language.
