in a glaze

June 25, 2020

I use very few glazes, mostly because glazing is a science, and I’m not fastidious enough for it. I do marvel over the magic of it though, what happens when a vitreous substance hits the intense heat of a kiln. There’s always an element of surprise. I came across the work of Melissa Weiss today, an American potter who uses a variety of celadons and ash glazes on her pieces. I love her designs, and the crudeness with which she glazes. Drips and chips add charm to her work. Have a look at her chunky mugs and highly patterned plates –– I think you’ll like them, too.
