    GiselleNo5 reacted to SydneyGee for a gallery image, Safari Mug Set   
    Another winning combo of glazes. I mixed a ton of iron filings into our recycled clay and put two glazes on the mug to re-create a safari/leopard/Savannah type look. The larger of the two is my personal favorite of all the pieces that came out of the kiln, the red drip is very appealing to me. There are three mugs in this set, I forgot to photograph the third. I also did a set of smaller espresso mugs in the opposite combo, red all over with the oatmeal glaze on the lip. Those came out great as well.

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from Mark (Marko) Madrazo for a gallery image, Slip trailing detail, interior of green bowl.   
    The results of an experiment with adding a touch of decoration. I kept the profile of the slip trailing lower than normal so I didn't add a hard-to-clean texture to the inside of a bowl. It came out really nicely.

    GiselleNo5 reacted to ChenowethArts for a gallery image, House on the House...   
    Handbuilt stoneware mugs, approximately 12oz capacity, fired cone10. Surface treatment includes 3-d dwelling, carved-out hillside community, and underglaze image transfers. The transfers are new to me...using a CriCut Explore to create silkscreen masks through which thickened underglaze is printed onto rice paper. Once dried, the surface of the mug is coated in underglaze, the transfer is sprayed until saturated, and then pressed/burnished (with pint side to the mug) onto the bisque fired surface. I'm not yet comfortable enough with this technique to try it on greenware but it should work equally well.
     
    Certainly there is a story to these mugs...the short version centers around work in some of the poorest slums in Central/South America in contrast with visits to numerous iconic cites in Europe.

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from SydneyGee for a gallery image, Note the "platforms" in the background   
    This year I made a dozen or so little flat bottomed, flat sided cylindrical dog and cat dishes. They are not proving hot sellers although I know for certain they will sell online so I'm not concerned. One problem I have with my displays (This is now the third time ever that I have set up an in-person show) is that I don't get enough height in the back. So when I have a shelf with lots of mugs they are all sitting there in a boring row around the same height.
     
    Well last night I went around and used the dog bowls turned upside down as pedestals! I'm totally delighted because they add to the color of the shelf and height too. Next year I'm going to specifically make as many of them as I can in a huge batch ahead of time just to use as pedestals! I'm going to make some of a third height as well. I hated the idea of buying acrylic display props. This is much much better to me!

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from oldlady for a gallery image, Other wall shelf with misc. items and oriental poppies   
    It's so funny! The poppies get a lot of attention but they are not selling either! Tomorrow I'm going to put them a bit lower down so people can see the pretty bright colors on the inside. Some are red and some are teal. These are favorites of mine and get a lot of compliments but definitely not a huge seller.

    This is actually a big table with the display in the middle and space around with dishes arranged to fill it. I couldn't step far enough back to fit the whole display in!

    GiselleNo5 reacted to SydneyGee for a gallery image, Tenmoku Sake Set   
    Tenmoku glazed on a dark red clay body. I was told it fired differently on the bottle because they were not all fired together, next time I will leave a note asking to have them be in the same part of the kiln to promote more consistency. First try making a set of something, the tiny cups proved quite a challenge! But it was fun.

    GiselleNo5 reacted to SydneyGee for a gallery image, Turquoise And White Matt bowl   
    Turquoise stone and white matte ^6 ox on bone white clay. A very wonky bowl, this was one of the first three things I made after taking a hiatus of 3 years from clay, be gentle! I needed to keep a few unsatisfactory pieces to try my experiments. Ended up loving the combo, but am very sad all the pieces developed pin holes on them... I talked to the professor and she is going to go over how to avoid that next time and keep my work together as to have a more consistent firing.
