Process from bisque to glaze fired (ONE)

If you're a potter, you can skip this post, because you go through this step daily.

Take a dry pot, and bisque fire it, then glaze it.  Right?

Mugs with ginkgo leaf imprints waiting for waxing, then glazing.

So here are the results, several days later.

Ginkgo leaves are barely visible with Celadon glaze.

A really nice subtle design

But wait...look what happened when I waxed the leaves and used shiny green glaze!

Yep, those ginkgo leaves sure do pop out here.  They are bare clay, but it's still dishwasher and food and microwave safe.

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...
