Out of the kiln flew the bird and the butterflies today…
I‘m very pleased with the dinner plate. And yahoo for the black glaze on the pitcher! I’m happy I put on four coats. The pansies are a bit lost…I should have outlined the petals, leaves and butterfly wings with a thin black line, but I was banking on the contrast of the fired colors themselves to pop and dazzle. Ah well. Nice curly-q butterfly feelers, though, eh? Love that etching tool. I have a new appreciation for ANY kind of decorated earthenware.
