still pretty excited about having enrolled in another course. you'd think with 10 weeks of the scholastic year, i'b be looking forward to nothing but the end. i'm a bit worried to report that i feel nothing but panic. i am deeply concerned with my my marks. it's a wakeup call i guess i needed, so i am thankful for that.
to begin, that saga of the ducks. i want these to be successful, and have been churning them out in an effort to have lotsa test tiles. they take 5 minutes of attention every 30 minutes so are a good excuse to 'take a break' ;) they're porcelain and when fired to ^10 there's a ~15% shrinkage, which seems to be a lot.
| another foiled attempt at crystalline glazing.|
i got some on these, but the glaze is supposed to be clear, the crystals large, and a lot runnier than it is.
| believe it or not this is a pikture of a pelvis hanging from string. having applied charcoal to the entire thing, rub out the light bits, then add more black and smudge. i hate charcoal.|
I am trying to break up a lj full of images of pottery, appreciate the art.
|this rather jaunty batch of ragtag pottery are the different tests that have gone into this fruitful crystalline experience.|
I awaiting an exciting Daughter positive weekend
