Reduction Fired Stoneware - Couple New Pieces

Today I picked up a couple of pieces from a recent firing at Bethel - a few wine coasters that were spoken for already and these two guys that were made for no-one in particular. The pictures don't really do 'em justice, but they give you the idea.

"Where do you cast your gaze when it feels like its spinning all around you? As for me, I want to learn to look skyward in any situation..."

The bowl above decorated with a passage of scripture from Hebrews, chapter 6. Both pieces really hit on the same themes and were created during times of uncertainty at Rhumbline - essentially talking myself into faith and desiring a pert-near illogical hope in difficult times.

Tomorrow morning I begin the next collection of steps (aka, start the new gig at Target). My only prayer is that I show His love to those around me and that I'm willing to trust Him with my day.

Hope you enjoy the work. pba.

    I really like the lettering on the pottery. I might experiment with that on a few of my pieces. Do you have a trick as to how the spacing or size so that what you want to put on fits?

    Absolutely impressive pieces. I personally prefer purchasing pottery (nice alliteration, huh!) from living artists. I would be proud to include these pieces in my life. :D
