1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Re: Bamboo planter pots on: June 28, 2015 03:37:47 PM
After having them in the shed due to a bud infestation Sad I finally brought them inside. They nicely fit a pickle jar inside them Smiley to keep my bamboo in water instead.

These are really great! They have a really organic quality to them. I especially like the crow image.

Congrats on being featured in the 'best of' list for 2014!!

Thanks. I loved making them.

Have you played any more?

When I did a glaze workshop some months ago we made up a triaxial blend.

I found it really good for variants in colour and to see how they reacted to each other.

I am just about to make the change from earthenware to stoneware......kinda excited about it but need to do some more research into glazes that will work well in oxidation.
So wish we had a gas kiln at the workshop. Sad

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 am just venturing into stoneware so I don't need any more distractions  Shocked Wink

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.
