Baby Potheads

Excuse the title, but that what we call them. Because they are pots, and because they are heads.

Now I’ll show you the baby versions of this category. They are about 2″ tall or so, and about the same in width. I used white low-fire or terracotta clay and colored their exteriors with Velvet underglaze Jet Black in a wash-off technique.

The interiors are done with Amaco Teacher’s Palette glazes – this makes them able to hold water, if anyone wanted to fill them with it. They were fired at cone 06. I made these in June 2019, as I did with the large potheads.

And, unlike the large potheads, I decorated the back sides of these little pots with various colors, using Velvet underglazes.

      Thank you, I worried they were too thick-walled for their small size but, I think the weightiness fits the style, I think it worked out. They are not really useful for much, but…they don’t have to be, really, and I think they are fun to make and cute.

          Yes. You are right. I have decided that among other things, such as fun to look at and hold, they are open-minded. You can tell them anything and they have room to consider it.

      They are kooky little guys. I like making them. I have some medium sized versions I just did so soon I will post them. Then the pothead universe will have a good start, population wise.

      Thank you, that is what I was hoping for. The exterior is done in a more rough style and unglazed and I thought the colorful and shiny insides would set things off plus look nice in of itself.
