3 Way Color

Here are a few cups I made last night with three different clays. The gray is a stoneware, then there is my red dirt stoneware, and the white is a white stoneware. Looks fine now, but we'll have to see how contrasting the clays are when they're fired. The clays have to be the same hardness/softness or I get smearing, like in the two cups at the right. The red dirt was real soft.

I really can't express how great it is to be making pots. The kick wheel, the table and the floor to wedge on are all I need for now.
