Today's bowl

It has taken me all day to decorate this one bowl. The pottery was warm today because the kiln had been on last night so the bowl was drying far too fast even with doing lots of spraying it was still very powdery.
The wooden slat in the top picture rests on two kiln props so that I can rest my hand on it when painting the bowl so I don't touch it or mark it. This was the last bowl out of my damp cupboard so it's onto some new work tomorrow.
