Ins and Outs

today these went into a glaze firing along with a friend's flat ware.



Not a tight pack but we are still testing to see if the kiln will get up to temp in its new position.

Earlier this week I was learning a bit about the shellac resist and wash back technique to decorate these bowls - more photos next week about these...

and then Ta Da...
one successful pig sculpture, YAY!

Not as dark as the previous one but no cracks either :^)

Remember to check out the other studio happenings over at Mud Colony and look for me on Facebook and also have a look at http://artistsinblogland.blogspot.com.au/

These are delicious looking, i miss touching clay, haven't done it in years.

Anna said...

Hi Mary, thanks for dropping by from AiBL, yes with clay you just have to keep trying sometimes. Glad you are still around to drop by after 'Sandy' :)

Anna said...

Hi Falling Ladies, maybe its time for you to get into clay again :) thanks for dropping by..

Oh how wonderful your pig sculpture turned out I love the rustic surface, good luck with the firing, what a great kiln that is being square that shape always seems so much more efficient to load to me.

Hi Linda, thanks I am pleased with this one. Yes I think I prefer a front loader - easier to check you have the lower level clear before you put the next shelf on top too :^)
