It's been a few months since I posted here. Much of my time in the studio has been spent testing glazes. I got my hands on some local granite (from near Lake Arrowhead), and have been testing away.
I have made some new pieces since my last post. Here's one, a thrown and carved chawan, glazed in white with some blue and brown glaze accents.
The carving reminds me of paths going up the side of a cliff. It's hefty for its size at a solid 600g.
The "floating foot" is something I *ahem* borrowed from Cory Lum. It is a cool effect:
More pics below. You can see the "breaking" of the glaze in the detail pics, as well as how the iron clay "bled" threw the interior glaze, producing some interesting spotting.
