Spot the dog the bowl




Hi,
This is another result of my hard work at pottery class! This is a bowl, with holes in, that has been made using inlay techniques, a clear glaze, and a 'hump-mould'. First you roll out a slab of the base colour, in this case being terracotta, you thenmake whatever shapes you want in the other colour clay, stoneware buff, roll them into the base slab, and, drape over the mould till it has dried. You then fire it. this has just been dipped in a clear glaze to show the pattern. It also has a small spot of iron oxide in the middle of each spot.

Hello Penny,

Thanks for your kind words on my blog! I'm glad you're enjoying my London Adventure (part 7 is up now!). It's nice to know that people are reading and enjoying what I have to say.

Keep up the great work (excellent pottery skillz, BTW!)

Love
-Ben
