New Plates

The new plates just came out of kiln yesterday. They turned out nicely. However, they were still slightly overfired.....too shinny. I replaced kiln elements from 240V to 208V about 3 weeks ago. They need to be re-calibrated by doing cone off set for correct firing result. Why it's never being easy to be a potter?!
I like this new process and the way it turns out. Now what? I am the new guy on the block, I need to look for places to sell my works now :)

  1. Po-Wen,
    I was in Green Hill today and purchased the oak-leaf platter as a gift to our church's organist who is retiring this month. She lived in Taiwan two years after college and I know she will be thrilled to see your work. As was I!
    Wonderful creative things.
    The oak especially spoke to me since I have a thing about these trees that can live for hundreds of years.
    Thanks for the blog.
    I wish I could see one of your teapots.
