this is one of my favorite places anywhere, The Clay Spot!
i went for a few hours on Monday to construct some bowls, and then again Wednesday to decorate,
There are six bowls and two plates. i used a variiety of screen prints, some mishima and a bit of slip trailing. It has been so long since I did any clay that The decorating didnt really all come together the way it sometimes does. however, it was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed the process a lot.
The clay is Helios porcelain so the final colors should be quite clear and the clay body a beautiful white. we'll see...
When I say I like to make, that means getting them to the decorated stage, not necessarily to the glazed and finished stage
I like to use underglaze, and I like to do slip trailing,
I like to work in small groups, and use one color one day and use another color on another day
Although mostly the mugs I make are about 4 inches tall, the other day I tried some taller ones, the ones decorated in pink, above. The walls are quite thin and seem like they might be a bit fragile. But I like the way they feel.
