Another way to achieve the look of the black lines on the flowers is to put black underglaze on the pieces after they are bisque fired, then wipe it off with a damp sponge, leaving black residue in the lines - then glaze over that. The black areas remain much darker than the rest.

I began studying pottery in an intensive summer program when I was in high school in Virginia in the early 1970's and have been fascinated with clay ever since. I have also taken classes at a number of different schools and art centers in NY, NJ and PA.
About ten years ago I began using porcelain (Standard 257) as my clay body. I finally set up a small studio at home after obtaining my own wheel (Brent C) and an old, very small L & L kiln which I only use for bisque firing. I fire to cone ten in a gas kiln at an arts center in Pennsylvania.
