my sister in law had a set in blue that she had bought from a discount/ end of line store, my second SIL saw them and wanted a set in red but of course the store no longer sold them so i painted her this set Smiley
painted with underglaze onto premade bisque, dipped in clear dipping glaze and fired.



detail of coasters


a leaving mug i made for a friend whos a huge Pirates fan (and an even bigger johnny depp fan..) the back reads 'yo ho, a pirates life for me' Smiley
the kiln caused the colour to bleed slightly across his forehead but im still pleased with how this turned out (and shed loved in anyway Grin )


a second leaving mug for a colleague (who is a proud Nanna and a bit of knitter!)


a (somewhat late Embarrassed) seasonal mug

as before these are painted onto premade bisque with underglaze, dipped in clear dipping glaze and fired
as always comments or advice are more than welcome : )

They're all wonderful! I love the painting on the first set, and what a thoughtful gift to give. I also love Jack!

Lovely work my favorite is the red and white one at the top. A very striking design!

Wow. I love the swirliness of the first set.
And Johnny... Wow. It looks so good! I hadn't even noticed the bleeding on his forehead. Even after you pointed it out, i could still hardly tell.
