Mister Roboto

Remember Robot? He didn’t stop kicking around in my head. I’ve been putting together some prototypes for a line, to be launched at this year’s Fresh Fish.

Bright colour inside, with something small in the same colour outside, and plain line drawings of Robot. The big box o’ underglazes was ordered for this and another project (those house mugs a few entries back).

I gave up on the glaze pen, and switched to a slip trailer for the black. It’s easier to use, I can change the nibs for thicker or finer lines, and it’s refillable. Yay!

These first three are all made with white stoneware, but I’ll be switching to cream… it’s a much softer clay, which means working with it is a lot easier on the wrists, and the warmer background colour will be nice.
