New shapes on the drying racks.

Here are a few of the new shapes of mine that are on the drying racks at the moment. I had to make a small stock as i will not be able to get on the kick wheel for a while as i have just had a complete new shoulder joint fitted. So throwing and wedging a no no for the moment.

Most of these have been stone polished  on the wheel after turning down the feet.

These pots will will get the new terra sigillata that cracks in the raku applied to them. I will spend some time on the decoration and application of the terra once the shoulder is  usable

Lamp Shades

Here are some pics of lamp shades that are made from porcelain with a wash out technique  before bisc fire. The blue is a diluted solution of cobalt sulphate . They have a cone 6 satin glaze on them.

Light shinning through the porcelain.

This is the warm glow they give off just with a low wattage energy saving lamp.
