More pottery, she said

I've slowly been making things in the studio.  And then painting various glaze designs on them at home.

A rough carved looking vase gets some red glaze, then paint a coat of wax on those hearts before being dipped into a vat of...I believe it was matte black glaze.

The shasta daisies have been waxed as well, including the leaves and stems.  They were then dipped into a pale turquoise that's a mason stain mixed into a small batch of our satin white.  The mason stain is called Bermuda Green.

And sometimes a small vase just wants a simple glaze.  Turquoise on the upper half, with a bit of celadon for the base.

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...
