I teach art at Bluefield College and I thought I would share one of my student pieces with you. Her name is Dana Frech and this picture is of several miniature pots that she made last semester (Spring 2009). The sizes of these range from about 1/2 inch to a little over 1 inch. Three of the pieces have been Raku fired (two left and far right) and the other two pieces were fired in a Cone 10 reduction kiln. Both of these pieces have a floral design painted on them with slips or a
glaze. She got this idea from one of the books I had assigned for the Advanced Ceramics class she was taking. As you can see her work is very detailed and intricately designed. When you pick up these pieces they are so light that it is almost like picking up a feather. They are very delicate and quite beautiful to hold in your hand.
