I tried making a few kitchen items on the wheel. This first one is a cup… I didn’t realize how much the pottery actually shrinks when it goes through the fire twice. The first time for the bisque fire and then again after that the items are glazed and fired again. The gold design you see on the pot is actually a stain that was done over-top the glaze.
This second item was meant to be a creamer- the clay dried a little too much for me to be able to get a handle onto it though so it’s a creamer without a handle. I really like how the color of the creamer turned out though.
