Moon dancer 4

A new technique...let's try carving, then using dark glazes to highlight (or is it lowlight?) the lines.

This bisque ware piece is somewhat pink, but will turn ivory when fired to cone 5-6.  There is a coat of matt clear on the moon and the dancer, and the rest of the vase, except for the lower carved details.

 After the glaze firing, the matt clear glaze all over seems fine, except where it interacts with the thin remains of the black stain...then there's a brownish tint.  Otherwise, I kind of like it.

 The concave face is interesting, but next time I think I won't do a double curve as well as all that carving.  Well, it was all experimental!

Today's quote:

When we begin to listen with our hearts rather than our heads, our whole world changes and becomes softer.

Today's quote:

While riding the wave of life you must also practice stillness so you can flow with, rather than resist the wave's motion.

Barbara, I absolutely love this piece. I have always been a moon lover, and this speaks volumes to me!
