This weeks wrap up--platters and more

Finished the first stage of painting on these five platters, so far everything looks good. It's a difficult time, before the bisque firing. That is usually when cracks will show up. I've been having difficulty with platters basically cracking in half! After all the time invested in the underglaze painting it is very painful when that happens!

It's been quiet around here, but I have been busy getting new work for the upcoming Spring show. I'll post more info closer to the event. Please join my private mailing list to get an invitation!

Black Swan

New work coming out of the kiln. I'm still working on technical issues to get my colors to work out. Many of the under-glazes have been coming out too dark, which is very frustrating. Finally, some of them are getting to what I want. This one I'm pleased with. :)
