Today I carved on a plate which I think will work with the three glazes I picked out. I also worked on a few other pieces, more about those later.
I've carved a bamboo drawing into a plate and then made a raised rim.
I think there is just enough carving to pick up the glaze colors without it being too busy. Of course after looking at these photos of the bamboo I'd love the do some slip deco of some bamboo.
I'm not sure about the rim, it looks a little big for the plate and the rounded square may not be quite right. I'll try a few more shapes today. I took the bamboo photos at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
