Forever

Remember those 5 large platters I was working on a few weeks ago? Well, four did not make it through the firing. Cracks, boohoo. Some worse than others. My favorite, this swan platter has the smallest hairline crack, just on one side. Deeply discounted on my Etsy site! Here

On the table this week

I'm too sad to post the pictures of the glazed platters from last week, 3 out of 4 cracked in the firing. I've done everything possible with caution, convinced it is the clay body. Until I get it sorted out I'll be doing smaller pieces, like these!

This weeks wrap up--platters and more

Finished the first stage of painting on these five platters, so far everything looks good. It's a difficult time, before the bisque firing. That is usually when cracks will show up. I've been having difficulty with platters basically cracking in half! After all the time invested in the underglaze painting it is very painful when that happens!

Oval Bowls



On the work table this week, oval bowls. These are about 12" long. I am enjoying painting on this simple shape but these paintings take a long time! Oh well, this is what I said I wanted to do, to put more time in each piece. :)
