Almost forgot to vent these, I left them uncovered last night to dry, but thankfully this morning they were still wet enough to poke. Not certain about the finish here, and if the pedestand should be one piece. I guess it should be so I best cover again when I get home. Stopping by Granny’s […]

This is just using a red underglaze, applied in green and a second coat after bisque. The covered in a commercial clear glaze. Not too bad. I really like the standing figure that is somewhat abstracted. I tried out a dipped piece of cloth in slip cast material as well and it worked well . […]
