HES, Week 9: Decorating Pottery Pieces

Painted pottery pieces, ready for the second firing

Black underglaze on clay #910 (semi-porcelain) and #542 (light grey)

 

Height pieces done, 20 more or so to do!

These are for this week’s Hello Every Sunday. You can see the first height weeks on the project’s blog at helloeverysunday.tumblr.com.

I’m back to black, since that’s the only underglaze in my studio for the moment. You may recognize the big mushroom in the plate from a previous drawing. This time, I tried a variation with the negative space.

22 Ready to Go

Ceramics by La Datcha (Julie Lapointe)

I just spent three hours sanding these 22 pieces until they felt like baby skin. ;-)
It makes it so much easier to paint on the surface once they’re bisqued.

They’re now ready to leave for their first firing.
