Getting closer



I’m really satisfied with the way my pebble design looks on my curvy cups. I just made some bowls but haven’t decorated them yet, but I have been thinking that I should branch out and make other forms. I’ve been contemplating a new pitcher shape, and large mixing bowls, and making more bud vases. I haven’t decorated a single one of my bud vases this way yet. Anyway, they look good coming out of the glaze firing, too. Below is a close up of the division between the glazed black surface and the velvety black slip without any glaze.



This is a test clay body, and I don’t actually like the crackle look going on in the glaze (the crazing). I am thinking about adding a little more custer feldspar to my clay to see if it helps the glaze fit better. Looks like it might be time to dump the clay body and glaze into digital insight to pick them apart and mess with the thermal expansion.
