More slippy bowls.

Look at these fabulous foot prints, great journey to work this morning, I walked down as the roads were far too icy for a bike (I got about 10 meters before I realised it was so slippy) there were so many different foot prints along the road and the verges. I know we will have deer, foxes, hares and pheasants but there were a couple that I didn’t have a clue about. These above are pheasants, they found themselves onto my pots this afternoon while I was decorating.

Wedding plate, I like the tree stretching over onto the rim rather than being completely confined by the banding. I usually put the banding on first but this time I left it till after I had done the lettering and the tree. It made the lettering a bit more difficult to judge but I am very pleased with the result.
Fresh new bowls
and lots of them.
I packed the kiln this morning for a bisque with the smallest of this shape of bowl that I had decorated last week, I am looking forward to having them out to see what they feel like to hold and to eat out of. There are also some mugs in there, a couple of big jugs and some of the pieces that Amanda decorated. I need to try out a glaze test on some pieces too when I fire the next glaze load, I have forgotten for the last few months. I have them on small test tiles but I’ll do some on real pots this time hopefully.

  1. What a lovely plate, Hannah. And a nice crunch on the icy path, too.

    I agree that is a great plate.on the Vid: it sounds like you made your shoes out of two packets of Rice Krispies at one of your scout meetings.
