Back in my "greenware--to post or not to post" thread, I added a link to my LPS (local pottery supply) and some of the clay they make and sell.

Wow some of those dark clays look awesome for a raw unglazed pot...

So, I bought some dark clay (called Oregon Brown), and made some simple pots.... here they are...

rectangles with in-set feet


sitting high on in-line feet


twins cut from the same slab


and the last two are my favorites, fat oval that came out really nice

Nice Boon!!

I like the 1st ones, the 2nd reminds me of end tables, all they need is a piece of glass over the top.

What dimensions are these?

I love dark bodies ;)

Have a couple pots in the kiln made Cassius basaltic, at ^4 they almost black, at ^04 they are dark brown.

Are you planning on glazing these or stain, etc.?

These pots are between 8X6 and 7X5 inches. They are fired to cone 6.

End tables? lol, well, they will probably be cactus pots, Lithops hopefully.
