Putting aside the kiln issue of the clear glaze melting down the pieces
sticking some of them to the kiln shelf.
Two pieces broke separating them from the shelf so they'll
stay with me. The method I used was a wash giving it a sepia appearance. The color I used
on some of them didn't really come through so I have to research underglazes
and glazes before I move on.
The two plates to the left will be mounted and framed.
I love the darkness giving the appearance of nighttime in the jungle.
The first one is 3 monkeys in the tree and a tiger watching them.
The other one is a giraffe.
The tea pots and boxes came out well and I learned a lot about
the clay and glazes.
Clay Angel Teapot
"1920 Travel" is a 3-1/2 inch tall box and 3x2 inches. Covered in old suitcases with the engine of an old train on the lid.
"Angels" is a 3-1/2 inch tall round 2 inch box. With an angel and a vase on top spilling water.
Clay Octopus Round Box is 3-1/4 inches tall and 2 inches around.
Clay Seaturtle Round Box is 3-1/2 inches tall and 2 inchs around.
Clay Alligator Teapot. It is a teapot. The Alligator is 7 inches long and 3 inches across. The lid has a water turtle on it.
These photos are the pieces that are greenware. I will remove them when I am finished with each teapot or box. All of them are under 4 inches in height. I am as well working with 3-D flat pieces. I have over eleven teapots and boxes [I think] and half have been bisque fired and the other half are at the Clay Shop waiting to be fired. Compared to glass, it is a slow process.
