Cups/Bug Day/Autumnal July…

It’s bug day and wanted to get a quick post in. Woke up and it was 60 degrees in Kentucky in July, maybe another record. Yesterday Sunglasses ended her 11 day streak of no ICE but it was raining when mom got up to go out with her. Here’s a cup that had my crawly experiment on it. It was definitely too thin but I like the matte surface and the color…

And here’s a couple shots of the bottoms where the glaze pooled enough to let me know that the glaze would work if it was a bit thicker…

This one didn’t crawl but added a nice matte and it stayed translucent enough to see some iron peeping through.

Here’s some cups that I’d been commissioned to make and was glad to get done because they’ve been waiting and I’ve been spending weeks decorating bowls to fill up the kiln…

So it’s autumn in Kentucky, about 65, breezy and I’ve got the bug for two days so I’m off.

    Looks like a touch thicker will really set that crawl glaze off. The glaze under it sometimes will act as ball bearings, especially if it’s a powdery glaze.
    Man… I drool whenever I see your handles!

    Those mugs look absolutely fantastic – luv the detail, especially the mark of the hand that shines through the glaze, including the detail on the bottom, all in white, is just very special indeed. The breaking up of the glaze, creating accenting highlights, makes the work that much more special This aspect of your work must satisfy your customers again and again. Well done
