New Star in the House

steven-colby-9-o9-3Today this amazing plate arrived at our house.  It's made by Steven Colby and I've wanted a pot of his for a while now.  (I stole this image off Steven's site because the photo I took just didn't do it justice).

I have no idea how Steven does what he does with his surface (and believe me I've scrutinized his process photos on his website!).  He's really a master at layering slip and glaze and whatever else is going on there.

I get the impression that Steven puts a lot of effort into each pot and the end result certainly shows that.   It's very inspiring to me and makes me want to continue to push myself in my work.
