I’m putting ceramic lessons on hold once again. This time, to make way for the two NAFA courses. Here are some of my most recent stuff that I haven’t posted before.
From last time, my first attempts at using under-glazes.
I like that it has a watercolour feel. The black ruined everything though.
Trying to see if under-glaze would “run” on a flat surface. I was pleased to find that it did not.
Flying Saucer. Am I punny? HAHA.
Fishies! Was more confident using under-glazes this time because of the results produced from the above plates. This would be my favourite piece if not for the smudges on the other side.
It’s like the fish are being vacuumed into another universe or something, haha.
Hmm. Seems like under-glaze would drip after all.
Them, cracks. So it goes.
White stoneware was quite hard to work with as it was very soft and your vessel tends to wobble as you coil. It also has a higher shrinkage. It’s all worth the while though, as it has a really nice finish!
I AM SO IN LOVE WITH RAKU CLAY.
Raku mixed with stoneware. This is the piece I sent into the Dragon Kiln in November 2014. It wasn’t completely cooked but I kind of liked how it turned out. It has a natural subtle ombre effect.
Many other things I have decided not to post here, too ugly. So consider yourselves lucky, haha.
I can’t wait for June because it means that the two NAFA courses would be done and I can go back to playing with clay. June also signifies the release of university application results. I’m so sick with apprehension like ughhhhh. I think I would be fine either way, please just let me know asap even if you decide to reject me. I just don’t want to waste time you know what I mean? :S
