OVAL CLOSURE


Someone emailed me over the weekend and asked why I hadn’t posted up a picture of the finished oval covered piece that I had shown as greenware back at the end of Oct. Honestly, it just slipped my mind.

I had made a group of them, in for a penny, in for a pound. They all made it through the bisque and in the glaze, one lid stuck just a bit, but was easily to grind and save. Waxing can be as complex as constructing these pieces as I want a near perfect oval wax line on the inside of the lid and in the galley. The bottoms of these pieces were all glazed and the pots were fired on wads, it makes for a neat look. I am pretty sure the illustrated piece is the one as greenware. It is glazed in my medieval green and temmoku glazes and measures about 12” from handle to handle.
