I am tryingout a new claybody and tried some teacup sized trivets. I made a few and then tried different shinos on them to see how they "fit". I'm always trying something new....
And you mentioned blossoms... I tried my hand at brushwork before, making some teacups with flower/blossom stuff... Thought I'd give it a go again... seemed well received before. Here are some things with blossoms.
I made a new slip up just for brushwork. When I tried my iron saturate, Temmoku, it ran a bit. So this slip is the just the ticket. Stays where you put it, can handle some ash which means I can get more flame on my turquoise oribe for the blossoms, and they will turn turquoise.
While I'm on here, I wanted to show an example of my attempt at fancier picture taking. I saw the lavender was in bloom and I get those darn purples in my oribe, so I clicked the shutter over there... kinda purdy.
Back to listing, I was waiting for a few days for the sun for my pictures. (Not that I didn't need time to get the wads off, sand the rim/lip of the pieces that your mouth goes on, etc). Does the glazes justice though.
