New iron-rich pots

These pieces are made from various different mixtures of a local high-iron (appr.5%) clay from Wallonia, Belgium and Witgert 2 leather-coloured clay. I mixed different proportions to see how to reduce the horrible bloating that the iron.rich clay was prone to having on its own, but also to see how to get a better hue -  a more tanned look, less of a dark chocolate colour.

I fired them to 1250 degrees Celcius, unglazed.
