This is the Luna moth with the light blue celadon. I have been measuring the volume of mugs in the last kiln. The porcelain shrinks 15% and with the new scale I am struggling a bit to refigure size with the more acurrate weights. And then I knocked it off the counter. This is the first and only blue moth. I actually thought it quite pretty. One good thing though--you can see how evenly it has been thrown (even with the broken edges). Every so often potters will cut through the middle of a wet form to check their throwing for evenness or for thickness. Recently I have been so behind, I haven't been willing to "waste" any forms. I already have days when I wreck them unintentionally. But the broken moth split in half pretty evenly so it is possible to gauge. This is/was, alas, a really nicely thrown mug. Thin but regular walls even toward the lip with a slight thickening on the curve just before the foot. The curve is soft . The glaze is also very even with a nice darker blue pooling in the bottom. Oh Well. I guess I'll be making another for the next kiln.
Frogs, hummingbirds and woodpeckers will join the blue moth in the next kiln. I have been asked for a nubian goat, so I'll have a prototype carved at some point. If you have an idea for a design, let me know. Hopefully I won't break any more
