This is the largest of the tentacle pots that will be available in the pot drop tomorrow. The larger these are the more complex they become to make and the more likely it becomes something will break in the making process so when they end up successful i am over the moon. This pot has some interesting glaze effects on the body of the pot as the glaze and oxide ran down the pot while firing. The unpredictable beauty of using oxides directly on glaze is one of the reasons I love this process so much.

In 1899, American potter and ceramicist Adelaide Alsop Robineau founded the monthly publication Keramic Studio with her husband, the French ceramics expert Samuel E. Robineau. Initially, the ceramic artist and social reformer Anna Byford Leonard shared editing responsibilities, but within a few years, Adelaide took over sole editorship and the publication stayed in print under that name for twenty years. The above images, collected in a portfolio of 50 plates (40 black and white and 10 color), were reprinted images from a monthly magazine called Design - Keramic Studio, published in Syracuse by the Keramic Studio Publishing Company, date unknown.
The earliest incarnation of Design - Keramic Studio I have been able to locate is from May 1919, suggesting Design - Keramic Studio was the next incarnation of Keramic Studio, which had concluded its run in that name in 1919. Design - Keramic Studio took a broader look at the decorative arts beyond ceramics and was marketed toward “the art teacher, student and designer.”
Adelaide Alsop Robineau passed away in February of 1929, and art educator Felix Payant took over editorship of the magazine, which was rebranded as Design but continued to bear Keramic Studio as a publisher for a number of years. Payant remained in his role as editor until 1947. Eventually the magazine relocated to Indianapolis and continued publishing until Fall of 1977 under a number of different publishers.
