Arte a Scuola
Creativity in the classroom and in life
The inside of the bowls is an excuse to draw sketches of flowers that glide like shadows into the concave surface. The bowls become containers of flowers …
These are lovely! Is it coloured slip or stains used to draw the flowers?
Hi Ruth, it’s coloured slip. I drew the flowers after the first fire, and then I glazed the bowls for the second fire. Thanks for your comment! 🙂
These are absolutely beautiful!
Thanks Kerrie-Anne, ceramic is my passion, but now I hardly have time to work on it, and I hope Thank you for your comment 🙂
When you drew you drew with a black colored slip and then did you have to fire it a second time with clear? I love them they are beautiful.
Yes, you’re right. I’ve drawn with a black engobe (colored slip) on the clay (leather hardness) and then fired the bowl, then I glazed it with clear glaze and fired it a second time.
Thanks for your kind comment Ginny 🙂
