Here are a few more pieces of pottery that I made, this time I tried carving out designs into the clay before firing it. This first piece is now being used as a pencil holder.
The carving effect didn’t turn out as nicely as I would have liked… so, I will have to try another technique with the glazing when I attempt this again. You can see only a faint shadow of the henna pattern that I attempted to carve into this piece. I want the carvings to show up more clearly.
I use this blue piece to hold some of my makeup brushes. I am going to try and attempt to make larger pieces now because everything that I’ve made so far basically fits in the palm of my hand.
