There was some slipping up in the studio yesterday, on some flowers that is. I put down one color of slip and then drizzled another color and combed or brushed through it haphazardly to see what I'd come up with. Sometimes I have to play around with the clay and techniques to see how things will turn out. These colors will change after firing, so we shall see. Black and white would have made a nice contrast, but I am out of the white stoneware for now.
When I was a kid we had tumblers and each had a different color, so why not for bowl sets. For the patterns above that I like I'll make larger bowl sets with one pattern and the same color. I could also make sets with the same color and a different pattern. So many possibilities.
In other news, one of my photographs will be used in a TV documentary in Texas; they contacted me via a phone call from my blog. So be sure to have your contact information listed on your blog, because you never know who may want to contact you. Thanks for reading and for your comments.
