Eucalyptus Carved Platter


That glaze in the sun .... *sigh of happiness* White stoneware, thrown on the pottery wheel, carved in a design of eucalyptus leaves in the wind. Glazed in Mayco's Stoned Denim at ^6 in an electric kiln.

@TLDinNC That is the break over carving. Love this glaze. Shows any kind of texture, raised or carved.


@Joseph F. Thanks! I've found that this glaze needs 4-5 coats for the lovely lighter blue float to really come up. It does bubble sometimes but the risk is worth it for the color.

It always bubbled on me. I might have fired it to hot though. I dunno, that was back when I didn't know nearly what I know now, which is still very little. Great work though, I bet it sells fast.


My friend took one look at it and claimed it as her own. LOL

Giselle, are you dipping or brushing?


Sorry, somehow I missed all these comments! This is brushed. I've used Stoned Denim dipped but it gives more of a uniform look, a lighter, more solid blue. I love the random streaks of brown mixed in with the blue so even though I just purchased 5 lbs of it I still plan to brush it on.
