A new shape, and I just love the way that the glaze has filled in the hollows, leaving the ridges of clay to form the pattern.
The pattern was made by using a small pattern roller, sort of a teeny rolling pin with the pattern hollowed out. I’d never used these before, and make totally different marks than lace or Indian wooden blocks.
I just hope I can get the glaze to pool like this again, it’s always hard to get the right amount on a piece, too little and there are large gaps that don’t have much colour, and too much and the ridges disappear.
It’s been cool and dull here, and the black dog is lurking again. I think I’ll be getting out my light lamp early this year and see if that helps.
Count down to Yarndale is on.
