Good, bad and ugly
« on: April 15, 2012, 01:48:24 PM »
I've had another play with some raku firing today, a couple of pieces are ok but most are not good. The rods sagged and some of the pieces touched, i did get some lustre and copper happening though so that's an improvement on the last firing.  I wish i had more time to practise, The beads are pretty rubbish, i don't think i got enough glaze on as the clay is showing through in some places.

The top 3 are quite nice, they have some nice colour , it doesn't show up too well in the picture

The one bottom left in the first pic, with the big hole is just gorgeous, looks like verdigris. They all look fab to me  ;D

I love the colours. The round pendant on the left of the blue oval is my favourite, reminds me of the seaside.

I'm loving the colours too. Then I would, they make me think of ancient pottery especially the ones with markings on them, just like the pottery found around Avebury. Its thought they used the ends of birds bones to make their designs. What did you use?

Thanks, i used the end of a metal tool i bought for metal clay, it's part of a set of double ended ones.  I can see how a small bone would work, or a twig. I sometimes paint with twigs, radical that i am, it has raised a few eyebrows I can tell ya.

I've been thinking about Roman Samian ware since last summer when they unearthed the bead and some pottery near my home. We have a Roman road running through our garden and a fort in a nearby field so I'm always inspired by the Romans.
