Some new goodies came out of the kiln yesterday!
I got to experiment a little more with the wall tiles and a squeeze bottle of wax resist. Most of the tiles in this batch have a stripe of embroidery- or paisley-inspired business down the side. I enjoyed it, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. I think I’ll do more.
I also did up a test for the dinnerware commission. One of the bowls got bumped while wet, and was declared my glaze dummy. I painted on a design with underglazes, put a clear glaze over it, wax resist on that, and then dipped the whole thing in cephaloglaze.
I’m… not sure what I think of it. Needs better drawing skills, for sure (this was just a quick sketch). And the colours could be adjusted a bit, especially on the leaves. And it needs a little something else in the background… even simple blue sky filler would be nicer than plain ol’ clay.
The berries turned out perfectly, though.
 Just as well… not only did it warp during firing, but it developed a crack in the rim to boot.
