Natural finish

Here's two views of one that wasn't burnished or terra sig'ed. It has a natural raw clay surface.

It's possible to seal it with an acrylic resin type product, but I think I prefer the softer colors. But it could bring out the lavendar/purples a little more...
What do you think?

Brian -- your pieces are fabulous! I like them natural. Will they need to hold liquid? I heard just recently that treating the inside with a tile sealant from Home Depot works great.
And I agree -- the world has gone mad. I can't imagine Arrowmont gone for a condo complex. Whew what are they thinking?

I struggle with the whole porous low-fired issue. I've heard the same about sealing the inside, but even then I don't know if I trust it.
So far, I've been educating my buyers that this is decorative and not 'functional', as if being beautiful and lifting your spirits isn't a function.
I've had to endure the inevitable 'so what's it good for then?' from the more analytical, practical shoppers.
