A couple of weeks ago at Pottery School, when I had some extra clay which was fast turning too hard to work with, I made this “Peas in the Pod”. Thinking it’d make a pretty display for my countertop.
I rolled three balls in different sizes. I cut a rectangular slab and ran the pin tool very unevenly on the sides. Then I kept the three peas at the center of the slab and raised the side walls with my fingers. Of course I “slipped and scored” each “pea” to the “pod”.
It was again fired in the kiln. What you see is twice fired Peas in the Pod! What do you think?
While we are on the subject of my favorite vegetable I lovingly called “Poto” as a kid, please see my peas recipes too. They have real peas in them!
Peas, pretty peas!
