Something Different

I got to Clayworks early yesterday for class so I decided to play around a bit. I made these small plates from our recycled clay and poured white slip on them. This morning I incised them with some images from my journal. I would like to cover these with clear glaze and do some pours of a transparent green to one side or in an abstract manner. We'll see.

I worked hard today trying to catch up from Monday. No images yet but stay tuned. It was a bit frantic trying to keep up with things. It seemed like things were wet one minute and then when I checked them again they were on the verge of drying out. So I had to keep up with getting handles on, bowls trimmed, and things slipped. I had made four teapots but only kept two.
