Tiddley blue dish


This is a tiny blue dish i recently made at my ceramics class. I made it by flattening out a circle of clay and then pressing it over an up-turned underglaze pot to make the shape, it was then biscuit fired. I sanded it smooth and gave the outside a coat of matte black glaze and the inside a coat of light blue glaze. After a second firing i decided it needed another coat of glaze, and i also sprinkled some crushed blue glass in the bottom, and it was fired, yet again!

That's a super cute dish, Toby!
It reminds me of one of those rocks that have loads of quartz crystals inside...do you know what I mean? It's lovely!

Hello Toby's mum! How are you??
I'm glad you liked Eustasia :0)

Is there any art form or media that you *don't* do Toby?

Lovely wobbly pot, Toby! So organic! It reminds me of those big round stones that they cut open and find a world of crystals inside. (Are they called vugs?) Good idea with the glass.
