Local clay pitcher with flashing slip

We unloaded the kiln today and in spite of the mishaps, it was a good firing. I took a lot of pictures, and I'll take some more tomorrow, but for now, I'll share my favorite from the firing (above). The pitcher is thrown with local clay that I dig on my land. I get a lot of bloating in the clay, but every now and then I get a piece that works, like this one. The white flashing slip is a recipe from Ben Owen which includes some King's Mountain clay.
