Recent work-Ceramics

Been attending ceramics classes with my daughter…some of our work below! Learned that “Shino” glaze should always be under other glazes if you want practical, useable pieces, otherwise you have bubbles that break and become very unhygienic, you can see the little craters on the plate in the centre of the plate group, although I do love the effect these cannot be the dinner plates I had in mind!

The Tea Tre (dragon skin tea pot) is the most recent piece…it is a double walled slab build, the pattern is an imprint from a crocheted table cloth. Using white clay, after bisque firing it received a wash of red Iron Oxide, then a dip in Ash glaze, which I then rubbed back to expose areas of clay and red oxide. Finally, I painted some purple oxide wash over the top.
