Kiln out and I had one or two good results with glaze over the black clay. This was actually an off cut from the piece below but it made rather a sweet little wall rack and I rather liked it.
The swimmer's body colour is a lot more runny on a verticle surface. I am glad that I am doing so many trials before the big ones, although I have invested a fair amount of time in this piece.The fish contrasts are a bit disappointing, I prefer the swimmer side. I've still a lot to learn about this clay, but I do love it's blackness.
...Oh, and here is the awkward commission - cider and wine images on a vertical sided dish. Hope they like it!
