A couple of months ago a wrote a post about blue pottery, and showed off a new blue glaze that I developed. Well here it is, working for me in an almost jewel like fashion on a covered cheese dish. In my previous post about blue glazes I talked about some reasons I didn’t like blue pottery, and asked, why do people like it so much. I had some great responses.
… I think I’m beginning to like blue a little more!
Of course if you go on the Pottery Trail this weekend you can get yourself one of these!

It’s the teacher in me… just thought you might like to see how a lid for a cheese dish is trimmed and finshed, with a knob.

I live in farm country, and love to make pots that can be used for the many local products that are harvested here in the valley. Recently at our Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail, the owner of Hillman Farm (goat cheese) came to my studio. She asked if I made covered cheese dishes. I said no, but I would like to. I asked her about the details on size etc. She explained that many people have goat cheese at room temperature, but that it needs to be covered. Well this gave me a new pottery challenge. So the past week or so I have been playing with ideas for these covered dishes. Here is one that I have decided to move further with.
