    Beautiful!!! Do try it in blue and white as well, I think that would also be amazing! You rock at geometrical patterns.
  2. Beautiful! Very good technique. Love the fact that the inside is clear and white.
  3. From the album: Painted plates, platters and bowls

    Inspired by Faiza Maghni portraits
  4. Hi there Judy.... thanks for the compliment. I'm not used to posting any of my stuff but this one got so many comments that I am quite embarrassed! I started the plate as greenware that I then cut and shaped, then freehanded the fish. I then did all my carving, and after that I did sliptrailing. It was then bisque fired and then I painted the platter. Final stage was glaze fire.
  5. Shame! It is such a helpless feeling..... AND knowing it could have been prevented!! Well, we never get too old to learn and to be reminded of things that we already know and practice...... patience, my dear Watson, patience.... Susan
  6. This tabletop started out with the centrepiece. When I finished it, I quite liked it and decided that I want to make a complete mosaic. All the small pieces I made and the small rondels I painted by hand. Then came the tricky part..... to cut pieces of mosaic tiles to fit around the small pieces! Well, as was expected, it did not work unless I used a gazillion small fragments. So I ended up cutting the pieces in greenware, bisque fired it, fit and filed it and numbered it, glazed, fired and then put the whole jigsaw puzzle together. It was quite a job, but the end result to me is lovely. The mosaic is mounted on newtec board, and lies on top of the table. So it is removable if I just need a smooth table.

    Mine Mine!

    Sometimes when I make something that is really good or beautiful (in my eyes...), and somebody wants to buy it, then I feel like saying It's mine!!! But you cannot keep everything, and you also have to share your work... problem is just that I give it away as gifts and do not sell enough of it.... it drives my husband up the wall... hiehie!!

    I use underglaze paints, Amaco and Claybright paints, on bisque. I use slip on greenwear and then, after the first firing, I paint my designs. I am pleased that you like my efforts.
