Inspiration comes in all forms. One of our students, a budding pastry chef, was accepted into Johnson and Whales for the upcoming school year. This cake plate was inspired by her love of all things "cake." I used a red earthenware and a combo of two commercial glazes fired to cone 05.
These are a few favorites. I like them because they marked a departure from what I had been doing. Sometimes, I will take a concept and go with it and explore other shapes. You can see more in "Useful Objects." These were all constructed using stoneware clay fired to cone 5 with commercial glazes.
