I can't resist showing you all my newest box.

I am so happy this box turned out even better than I thought it would. It was a test to see how much control I had over my glazes. I drew light stripes on the box to mimic gift wrap. I then glazed each a different color leaving a narrow strip of bare clay showing in between each glaze stripe. For the ribbon and the feet I used a roller to impress a scroll design. I shaped the ribbon into a roll that looked nice and could also be used as a knob. Once fired I added thin strips of laser transfer patterns to each glaze stripe, again using a different pattern for each color. The ends of the box got narrow strips of black to suggest folded over wrapping paper. The design goes all around the box ncluding the bottom.

It was a lot of work but I learned a lot about what my materials can handle and plan to push this even further next time.

what a wonderful gift box!  as much fun as opening a present can be.  

 

you sure have figured out putting your printed laser transfers on pots.  can you take the time to put some instructions out for us?

 

actually, maybe the magazine editors ought to see this and ask for an article.  maybe a video?

Very very nice work :D although I think transfers crowd the colour a little too much.


One physical test is worth a thousand expert opinions.
