burnishing

I’m making slab dishes at the moment.  Big slabs of rolled clay draped over a plaster former.  Think of big mushroom!  I’ve been burnishing the underside as I won’t be glazing it.  Burnishing just makes the surface finer.

It is lovely to have a big space to decorate, much larger than a button.  I’ve been doing buttons too, and trying spoons.  It’s a learning curve, as everything is that you try and is new.

Enjoying it.  Must throw this week too, then I’ll have some new thrown pots for Yarndale.

And speaking of Yarndale, there is now a plan of the stalls, I’m stall 115.
