Springtime, New Work, and Weddings

Hello friends.

Springtime came early to Indiana.  It’s that season of the year that I begin to make “saggar-fired pots”… those which some paleotologists who have seen them have dubbed “fast fossils”.  (You can Google “carbonization fossils” to see how Mother Nature, in her own sweet time, makes fossils that are not too different from what this firing process produces.)

Here are a few images and detail images to show the magic and mystery this way of firing creates:

And here are a few more:  just look at this magic!

There are more than 2 dozen of these saggar-fired works on my web site:  go to   http://www.dicklehman.com and select this link at the top of the page:    ceramics for sale.  There you can use the “sort” mechanism at the top of the page, selecting “saggar firing” as the technique, and you will see all of these works currently offered.

I also have some new work to show you.  When our son announced his engagement, it came with a request for 250 cups for the guests who are invited to the wedding.  I’ve been working on some new things for them……and as a result, have some new things to offer you on the web site as well.  Here is a glimpse of some of the new “nature inspired” cups that will be at the wedding and which are offered on the web site as well.  (Thanks to Jack Troy who inspired this way of working.)

Visit the web site often, as there will be plenty more new things for you to see.  Please keep me in mind for your wedding, anniversary and holiday gifts over the summer.

Happy Springtime, everyone!
