Photos of carved things
Posted January 29, 2011on:
As promised I have photos of the carving work (or sgrafitto) I have been doing as of late. There are three different things (five if you count the lids) and they are each a different colour. I am still deciding as to whether or not to glaze the exterior of the pieces or only the interior. I might not glaze the large bowl at all. I have time to decide as they go through the first line of firings. It will be easier to decide once I feel them after that.
The bowl is a a normal blue with red markings on the circles on white clay. I think after the firing it will really pop! One jar is distressed with a black and grey slip on white clay. It has markings like branches with other markings. The other jar is robin’s egg blue (that looks kind of green now) is a bubbly pattern also on white clay.
