This class (and workshop) I made a number of dragon items. You've already seen the dragon hatchling from the raku course on the weekend. I also made this little hatching eggs:
Here are a few more views of this little hatchling :
15) This bowl was thrown from P570 white clay. I seem to remember it was a bit lop-sided (maybe the bat-mate moved on me, I can't remember), but I ended up pinching the rim into a sort of floral pattern. It is glazed with Amber Celadon all around, with Copper Red added to the inside. I guess the Copper Red was not thick enough, it teased me with only a hint of red. But I'm really pleased with that smeary runny pattern inside. I will definitely try this combination again.
I had in my head to finish it like this, with black stain all around, and glaze just in the cracks. I discussed it with a couple of the instructors, and they seemed skeptical of my approach. Which gave me all the more resolve to try it out, and prove that I could do it. Which I did. It was stained black, then I waxed the surface, and applied glaze, which settled mostly in the unglazed cracks, and then I wiped a bit of the excess off with a sponge. I really like the bright blue, it looks like a molten inside, ready to ooze through the dry black exterior. I will definitely try something like this again, and with different clay which may be easier to handle.
I will stop there tonight, as I am quite tired, and save the totem pieces (and other things I may pick up soon) for another time. Stay tuned.
