Those that follow my blog will know I fired a pot recently expecting a black decoration. It turned blue instead! Still nice and usable just not what I was expecting.
It was suggested that it could return to black in the firing but as you can see that wasn't the case:
It was a good firing and I'm pleased with all the results...
This morning I went outside and found a puzzle...
this palm tree flower stem was slap bang in the middle of this pot! The yard is enclosed and the pot is not near the fence so it has fallen directly off the tree into the pot without knocking the pot over!
Such a funny thing ... it is rather chewed so may have been dropped by a cockatoo but still a great shot!
I made these two pots some time ago.. they are wheel thrown, decorated with terrasiggalata and then pit fired.
