Pottery Time: Bowls, Platters and Dishes
The top one I made by doing a variety of cutouts with different prints on them and then pressing them together in a small dish with short sides. I was thinking I might use this dish to give as a hostess present with homemade candies on top. I would try this one again, but I think I would make even more cutouts to make the sides more defined.
Another candy dish? Well, that is what I gave it to my husband as. I had done an imprint with a branch from our front yard, but the glaze filled in to much. I do like the wavy edges on this and would make it again, but I think I would hand paint on underglaze and then glaze over all in a clear.
I gave this bowl as a gift to a friend for her birthday. I was testing to see how these glazes worked together with the print I made on this bowl. I have made this bowl a few times with the curves a bit different each time.
