You can see in the last photo that the piece I was talking about in the previous post did not come out as I would have liked to! But it’s ok, it was a first time and I know now a couple things like:
- I have to be careful with the brush strokes because they will show if there is only one coat of underglaze;
- It’s better to apply two or three coats if you want a smooth and even finish (except for black).
We’ll see how the bowls from the first photo will end up, now that I know better!
My throwing technique is sloooooowly improving; the walls of my pieces are getting a bit thinner and I can throw a cylinder once in a while. :-)
Oh and by the way, since the last post, we moved in a new house. It’s bigger and I have a room with a door that can be shut. It means I can now work and draw without being invaded!
