Finished winter vessels

Once my winter vessels were fired I glazed them using a white stoneware glaze for inside and a clear gloss glaze on the outside.

These are the finished results.

I am not overly keen on them for a number of reasons. Firstly they are too blue! – I used way too much cobalt oxide, secondly the reclaimed clay I used does not work well, it does not have a good enough finish, so from now on I will use B17C stoneware clay which has a lovely smooth finish.

On the day I put the coloured slip on these pots it was a very cold blustery winters day which was why I tried to added texture with applying thick slip to get a sense of movement. I don’t think it was very successful, I will try it again but with using the spray gun and different coloured glazed.
