A lot of beautiful pieces! I was especially drawn to the double-walled pieces. I am often drawn to that style and yours have this soft, dream-like quality to them. And that spark of green on your beaded ash post is lovely! You have such a variety of of pieces - do you have a favorite style or a favorite glaze to work with?
