Another creation from my ceramics class this semester. The bases and discs are all made from stoneware clay fired to cone 10. Instead of glazing, I used oxide washes on everything. I wanted to have color on both sides and a more natural look, which is why I went this route and didn't glaze them.

C&C welcome!

This first one is for the Peacock swap. I used a chrome and cobalt oxide wash to get the beautiful blue color, then glazed over the designs with Hollywood Clear glaze to make them shiny. The peacock and feathers are all done freehand, so I'm amazed that they came out as good as they did.









This second one is for my mom's birthday. This was done in a red iron oxide wash. The designs are actually from rubber scrapbooking stamps.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I really like the natural effect these have, I too like the peacock one best I think I just like the shade of blue and the disks look really nice especially that feather one.

Great work!
