Before and After








Off to Florida in a few days, but I wanted to share the results of my paper resist technique. To glaze these pieces, I covered the outside with a thin layer of transparent glaze, just enough to give the surface a nice sheen but still allow the stain and texture to be seen clearly. The inside of these pots were glazed with Flambe blue and the rims dipped in Castille blue, a very nice contrast I thought. Holly's lorikeet, Missy, posed with these finished pots! I thought the color on the rims almost matched the blue in Missy's feathers!

Barbara,
I've always admired your glazing ability. You have a way of making them look devine. Simply Stunning.
