Well friends, after having a depressing number of mugs fly off the wheel whilst throwing, I decided to salvage what messed up and dented mugs I had to test out my tree stamp. Other than this little slab being way thick, I think it looks pretty neat!
Functional work!! I haven’t thrown/ made functional work since college so I decided to switch it up a bit. the Bottle is slab and coil built and the rest are thrown. I used underglazes a bit of sgraffito and inlay. Hopefully if the work looks nice I’ll start up my etsy and make more
There’s one little bare spot on the lip of this cup, but it resonates with the shape of the glaze on the opposite side of it. The clay was fired to temperature so the exposed clay doesn’t pose a health problem, so I think I will leave this as is.
^^ sometimes I fire a cup twice to correct this kind of stuff, but sometimes I accept it.
Finished a set of mugs (top) for the home, a breakfast bowl for Sarah, and a few mugs for friends. Really enjoying ceramics right now. I might have a few mugs to give away soon while I experiment with developing a series.
