I made some footed bowls for the first time that weren't too bad...I got some Mid-Century melamine bowls from my mom and used them as a form to push balls of clay onto the sides and played with different glazes. And of course I used bits and pieces of clay to make some jewelry.
|Fresh from the kiln!|
|Four bowls made the same way with different stonewares,|
cone 6 and cone 10, and different glaze techniques.
I call them Cloud Bowls because they especially look cloudy from the top.
|I made a boatload of pendants with my left over clay and tried out new stamps|
and glazes. Then I strung them on leather cord and learned a little about tying
|I wound a strip of vinyl around their little bodies (slip was applied before bisque) and|
then dipped them in white glaze. After the glaze dried I pulled off the vinyl to reveal the
raw clay beneath.
|The stencil experience looked silly during the process.|
