I love your style and the handles on your mugs look great.
Your doing very well for someone who just started.

Oh that is so true! It's even more interesting with smoked pieces because it's not just opening the kiln but waiting for it to come out of the newspaper that smokes it and then yet another look because it still has to have the soot cleaned off.

Haven't tried that yet.....on the to do list.  Grin



Once you start, its hard to stop!  I keep trying to put some work in the electric kiln but I'm too far over on the dark side with raku Smiley

I LOVE the cat. I mean the shape is awesome.

I have always found that opening the kiln is a surprise because nothing usually comes out the way you expect.

I love the decals.  Just bought some paper recently and have been playing with it.  Yours look so beautiful.

Thank you.

would love to see what you do with your paper.

Thanks, Tanza!

I carved the birds and feathers by hand. The lace, stripes, dots, and clouds are all done with underglaze brushed over paper stencils.

Did you use paper stencils for all of them?

did you spray, brush or dab the under glaze over the stencils?

wow it has gone on so smoothly.

awesome job. I love your work.

These are wonderful! Did you make the decals yourself or purchase them ready made?

I had them printed out for me.

My Tafe lecturer just bought a HP printer, it has iron oxide in the black ink so when it goes into a bisque fire it burns out and sinks into the glaze a red/brown colour.
We use water slide decals and print them ourselves.

I love your use of colours.

I think the last little one with the bird is my favorite most definably.

I love it when a glaze/under glaze does something unexpected and you fall in love with it.
