I picked up another 4 items today which came out of the kiln.
Here's a sneak peek of a few more items I was glazing today, but didn't finish. The glaze deadline is next week, at which point I need to finish all my remaining items, if I am to have them finished this term. No worries, since I signed up today for the next course, which starts in April.
#8 in this post) in my first ceramics course. My notes indicate it was red slip, although I don't believe we have any red slip, so I'm guessing it was red underglaze... Anyhow, the part which I coated in Clear glaze was very muted, but the bottom where it was just the slip or underglaze was quite bright red. But then one of my classmates said she used red underglaze previously, and it turned out quite dull. So I guess I'll just wait and see!
I have some other fun stuff today, like a pot which was a wonderful shape, but again too plain... So I asked my classmate Roma and she suggested I add a gecko. Which is what I proceeded to do. Then she was inspired by my gecko / lizard, and also added one to one of her pots. So much fun! I love all the creativity in and around the studio, and how each person brings some new idea which I can learn from, and likewise inspire them.
