Love this display set up from @sustain.chicago! Hanging planters, coffee cones, bowls, and more. Very happy to have this Chicago gallery and shop carrying my work 🤗

Throwing a 6 pound platter today—HARROWING!! This video perfectly captures the moment when I thought I lost it by bringing the walls down too far, but it managed to hold up (due to lots of blow torching). Very pleased with how it turned out, but I’m 99% sure I’m going to really fuck it up when it comes time to glaze it 😑 Also I don’t know what’s up with my seemingly serene smile during most of this—I was VERY on edge!

Local folk! And those of you in the hi-desert today—I will be selling pots (and plants) today at @shop_onthe_mesa from 11-5! Come on by, there will be lots of cool vendors there too 💫 Also, I have the results of my latest glaze firing (see last post) and its really one for the books!

THIS GLAZE IS DRIVING ME NUTS!! I mixed up a new batch of it the other day, and I can’t seem to get it to crawl like it used to. It’s a case of an irreplicable test tile 😡This picture is of a variety of different glazing methods I applied to the same glaze firing. Oddly enough, my favorites (3rd and 4th from left) were dipped in glaze that I poured into a small measuring cup. Anyone know why there would be a difference between dipping a piece directly into the glaze bucket, versus dipping into a smaller amount of glaze poured into a measuring cup??

Playing with tape as resist. Also attempting to channel Maria Martinez’s sublime black pottery. The glazing was a lot harder than I anticipated, and the clay bloated....I’ve got a long way to go!

Consistency is always tricky when throwing off the hump—at least it is for me! Viewed from above, these guys look pretty uniform more or less...but their heights vary more then I’d like them too! 🤨

Very pleased with the glazing on these two hanging planters. That dark turquoise glaze and I have had a tumultuous relationship, but we’re finally learning to work together!

Back to the wonderful world of Sodium Silicate!

About

About

ZZIEE Ceramics is the work of Elizabeth Eisenstein, a sculptor and potter based in Joshua Tree, CA. Coming from a fine arts background, she enjoys making work that straddles the divide between pottery and sculpture. She is equally inspired by the work of master Japanese potters, and that of first-graders. Consequently, a reverence for the medium, combined with an inquisitive and playful approach in the studio, is integral to her practice. At the end of the day, she simply strives to make funny things out of mud that feel good to hold, look at, and use.
