Continuing through the finished items from my Spring Ahead garden pottery course (see preview, first set and second set), these are the remaining items which I've picked up (and if I make it to the studio tomorrow, there should be more to pick up). Most of them are pieces for a garden totem, which I hope to assemble soon (maybe once the snow has cleared!!) :
21) The ice cream was thrown from 2200 g of H550 grey clay. It was originally intended to be an acorn, but it went wonky, so I hand altered it while soft, to form those delicious swirls. It is glazed in White.
22) The cone was thrown to match it, and glazed with Gordon's Shino. As it was dipped, it went on too thick, and is mostly white, not the orange tones which I was hoping from the Shino. Next time I'll stick with Carbon Trap Shino, which has given me better results, and will probably spray the glaze, to better control the thickness.
I hope to have more tomorrow. According to my notes, I have a whopping 22 more pieces which have been glazed, and are either waiting to be fired, or to be picked up.
