my partner asked for some fun coasters. she loves octopus so i made these coasters for a swap.
i covered the pottery with first a layer of white glaze then a layer of black. when it was dry i scratched of areas of black glaze to create the design. the coasters were then coat in clear glaze.
the technique leaves a slight textured 3d effect (depending how big and deep your scratching is) which i like but unfortunatly dosnt photo well Sad



the whole set, my favourites are the 2 on the right Smiley

You know, I am not a fan of octopi myself - except grilled or deep fried with a zesty dipping sauce.... but these are frankly gorgeous!
