Red Bowl

IMG_2494Red glazes were fiendishly difficult when I was at college. The chemistry has moved on a lot since then. Semi-matt textured effects like this are now very popular and I can see why. This bowl, as with all my work is glaze fired to 1230 degrees Celsius. This lovely plummy colour would have faded to brown back in the day.

One of the great things about stoneware is the way glazes change colour over edges and throwing rings.

Just Thrown Mugs

IMG_2415Here we have newly thrown mugs. yet to have handles attached. I’m new to throwing sets of the same shape.

It’s really difficult!

There are ways of setting gauges for height and width, but I’m not accurate enough yet. The mug cupboard is bursting with wonky, too fat, too small mugs I can’t put out for sale.
