Week 4

This was a quiet week, largely in part because of the under 10 degree days and having school cancelled. I didn’t make it into the studio until the weekend, and I spent all of my time finishing up my Apologia pieces and creating one last piece that is in the shape of a full moon with lots of texture on it to replicate more coral. My pieces are being bisqued this upcoming week and I can’t wait to see how they hold up. I haven’t added any color to them, and intend on using earth toned and underwater color glazes.

I also got a few pieces out of the kiln when I came in this weekend, and I am so absolutely happy with how my mug came out. It was my first time using the Alumina Pink slip and it came out so soft and subtle, I love it. The planter I made is also finished. It’s the perfect size for a small or medium plant; I made a hole through the bottom and left the inside unglazed to better water the plant. I can’t wait to see it in use!
