All three platters from the latest firing turned out great.I brushed two coats of satin clear glaze over each of these platter but in opposite directions and I think that works well to make the brush strokes less visible. Behind the finches is a thin coat of white slip reminiscent of cirrus clouds..
The Canada geese platter is a little darker than I wanted and the eyes are less defined but still the features are recognizable.
The rabbit in the tall grass looks better in person than he does in the photo. It's always a real trick to get a clear glaze the right thinness to cover the platter but not fire milky. This time it all came together. Making platters and plates a little thicker and firing them on a bed of silica sand in the bisque and glaze firing really helps prevent them from warping.
Here's a square dinner plate I glazed in a matt lavender. There are few speckles of blue which may not be visible in this photo. A plain plate perfect for staging some of my recipes upon. Stay tuned for the extra large bowl. Oh and I fired one button. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
