Leftleft: I made a basic stencil paper slopped underglaze on it, placed it face down on pot on wheel then applied other under glaze over and around it. Lifted the stencil off and flipped it, new colour from previous process onto next bowl and applied different undergalze to that pot and so on till stencil disintegrates and then carry on from start with new stencil. I then go in and sgraffiito and clarify features that I want to stand out, destroying hopefully teh basic stencil shape.
Left : is majolica but I put fine sand into the brown und rglaze for texture and wish I hadden't..trying to capture the prickly nature of the beast.
right: clay addition to pot, a hand grabber for stopping soup bowl sliding to floor! Coated with 3 mang.Dioxide, 1 part black copper.. sanded back before bisque careful mang... then wax resisted before the glaze applied
right right: onglaze: glaze on glaze + touch of black copper accents.
