more mugs (what else is new?)

Clay: Speckled brownstone stoneware from Highwater Clay
All glazes are available to students at the Clay Studio of The Black Mountain Center for the Arts

Glaze: tree is painted with red iron oxide, then waxed.
inside Eggshell glaze is poured
upper half outside: dipped in Mexico
lower half: dipped in Shiney Green thinly applied
the waxed areas have all glaze removed from them with a wet brush after mugs have been dipped in glaze vats.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
