So as you know if you’ve been following my posts recently I am working a lot with clay these days. I love the simplicity of throwing a clay vase and finding a simple decoration idea.The clay dictates what it wants to do on the wheel! Here’s a terra-cotta vase covered with a red slip. The figures are painted in black under glaze. Now it needs to be bisque fired and finally fire glazed. A lengthly process! I have quite a few vases on the go at the moment so hopefully they’ll all turn out well. I am not a trained Potter, so it is learning by doing and having fun along the way!

I really love this one Katherine. The rosy color is gorgeous. Will it change any when fired?
Thank you. I don’t know about the change in color. I will be firing it tomorrow – I hope it stays pretty much the same as I really like the warm tone. I’ll keep you posted!
