Small thrown bowl with carved foot
5 March 2014
Glazed and ready to fire. Test tiles of the two glazes used (fired at Δ 6 oxidation) are sitting next to the unfired bowl. The clay body of the test tiles is slightly different, but I think it will be close enough to get similar colors. I sponged a light wash of red iron oxide onto the carved foot of the bowl before painting it with wax resist, to give it a more interesting visual texture, rather than just leaving it white. I am thinking that the dark reddish brown will complement the greens of the glazes when fired.
Clay body: Clay Art White (Δ 10)
inside: Test glaze #8 Chrome oxide 1% (poured)
outside: Test glaze #4 Copper Carbonate 3% (brushed/dripped)
To be fired at Δ 6 oxidation
