Tests & Rejects


In all ceramics there are tests and tests and more tests. Lots of items never make it to a good home. The better of the rejects live in our studio as a constant reminder of how fickle our work can be.

Above is a variegated pile of left over rcboisjoli bowls. Glaze tests, warped, too thick, failed decals or just plain ugly render these bowls un-sellable. When the studio is too cluttered or if we need to take out some aggression, we take a trip to the dumpster and smash!
