These are my two plates that i made on the wheel. The bigger, green plate is 6 and 1/4 inches wide and a 1/2 inch tall. It was glazed with terquise glaze. The smaller of the two plates is 5 and 1/4 inches wide and just a hair under one inch tall. This plate is glazed with the bahama beach glaze. Both os these plaes have a very similar form and glazed with only one color. They have simple shapes and simple glazes.
This is my wheel altered project that I made on the wheel. It's about 3 3/4 inches tall and about 4 inches wide including the handle. The handle is made to keep your hand warm while you drink what is in the mug. I glazed the mug with bahama breach and purple as the accent color. Inside the handle where the glazes meet make a really pretty blue. There is a thin line of blue under the purple glaze where the two glazes meet as well on the outside. The two glazes meeting could have made a bigger line and would have made for a more complex piece of art.
This is my set of three that I made on the wheel. I glazed them with black and tomatoe red glaze. The tallest one is 3 3/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches tall, and the shortest one is 1 1/4 inches tall and 3 1/4 inches wide. They all have the same simple shape that flips out on the top. To jazz up the project I glaze them with about 3/4 of the pot black and the rest red.
Symetery is used many places to pull things together or almost tie up loose ends in the world of art and design. My wider than tall project that was made on the wheel is short, but wide. The symeterical wavy lines originating from the center of the bowl, give a symeterical feel. In the lines there was supposed to be shadow green glaze, but that did not turn out perfectly. The rest is glazed lightly with black, but turned out to be a dark chocolate brown. The wavy symeterical lines pull the project together and give it a very simple, yet playful mood, in the sence of not wanting another plain bowl.
