Playing with glazes II
Painting with engobe, and glazes on Black Mountain clay.
Something is very wrong with the weather here. It is the middle of February, and instead of rains we are having a heat wave. The nature got confused; trees and flowers are blooming early; it seems like nature thinks it is already spring.
I am confused too. I thought brushing glazes on pottery would be fun, and how could it be that potters out there didn't think about it…
mmm, the process itself was really fun. I enjoyed it very much, but the results…
It seems that painting with glazes isn't that simple, or at least, the results are not as I thought they would be.
Maybe, I have to find the right way to paint with glazes, there must be a way to do it right, and as I know myself, I'll work hard to find the way.
The other bowls, which I worked on with sgraffito technique, came out very beautiful, although distorted a little, and do not look as perfect rounding, probably because the technique which needs me to hold the bowl in my lap, while cutting inside.
