Lidded Pots

Lidded pots

I went back to Eastnor Pottery again last Sunday to do some more throwing. While I was there, I picked up the lidded pots that I threw and decorated during my last two sessions there. The pots are all quite small – no more than 3″ tall – and therefore were very fiddly to throw. Nevertheless, I’m pleased with how well I’ve managed to get the lids to fit. I’m not a skilled enough potter to make a set of absolutely identical pots, but these are clearly all “variations on a theme”, which is what I was aiming for.┬áThe splatter decoration is achieved using an old toothbrush, dipped in a contrasting colour of slip. It’s dead easy to do, and surprisingly effective.
