Still working

I'm having a late start this morning as a clean up operation was needed in the pottery. The boys are on an inset day (when they were small they used to call it an insect day!) I've had the vacuum out there to make sure there isn't too much build up of dust. The little bowls are all tests for ideas. Don't know if the lustre on the insects will show up in the pictures. Thy are quite dark so I will try omitting the oxide painting underneath. At first I wasn't at all impressed and felt totally underwhelmed but then I carried one outside to put tomatoes in. As the sunlight caught the lustre it looked glorious. So I will try a few more tests.

Packed the kiln for a biscuit this morning but these are the pots that wouldn't fit in! There are a few more on the shelves too so I'd over estimated the capacity of the kiln. I think I need 2 kilns!!
Son number 1 has just put his music on the whole house is pounding so I must get back to the pottery quickly!!!

  2. Hi Margaret, Nice touch with the luster.

  3. They all look lovely Margaret, with such rich colours and of course your beautiful decoration. I know you will get there with the lustre, in fact you probaly have,
    it's just that what is first class to some is never good enough for you. Well done.
