My crap

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.
i don't know how/what to do with these guys, but i have a sense they're 'it' i just can't work out how - yet.

 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
