A recent plate from the kiln:



She's made red clay, carved, with an iron oxide wash, underglaze (on the flowers) and glaze.There was some bubbling in the underglaze, sadly. Sometimes the kiln gods just like to mess with me! Smiley

There's quite a strong light pointed at the plate, hence the glare, but the pale greenish glaze on the skellie really glows a bit in person. Looks kinda radioactive, no?

Here's a comparison of the plate as greenware:

I love the colours of the flowers, they're really pretty. Smiley I especially like the way you did the skull though, such attention to detail! Cheesy

Thanks, all! I love carving Posada style calaveras.  Smiley (Getting the glaze right is another story! Grrrr!)
