docweathers Posted October 31, 2013 Report Share Posted October 31, 2013 I tried some oil spot glazes. I was advised to just keep pouring it on thicker and thicker. The vertical surfaces of my pot were very nice but a good portion of the glaze slid off onto my kiln shelf making a very organic foot at some points an inch and a half wide. At first it was "ah my what a mess. How am I going to chip or grind this stuff off." Then I began to look at the color, shape and patterns. They are really very pretty but against the rules. The rules seem to say that the upper part of a pot can be twisted, lumpy, bumpy, organic, distorted etc. but the bottom always needs to be a neat little round circle with a quarter inch clay showing. Why? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
