Large Jug Blasted with Wood Ash

I've been busy changing elements, drawing trees and trying to figure out using a new gizmo for converting slides into digital images, so I haven't taken many pictures of the pots from David Stuempfle's wood-firing recently.

I did say I would post some, so here's one of my favorites. It's 16 inches high and about 11 inches wide. David or Tim Ayers, who helped a lot with loading and firing, laid it on its side near the front of the kiln where it got blasted. Clay is STAR White 10/ NC clay blend, from STARworks Ceramics.

That's a bit of seashell that I left imbedded into the clay.
The pot was laid on wads topped with seashells.
