Hello Everyone! Here are some bowls that I was experementing with...I'm trying to design something that looks both modern and neolithic. I'm going to make an entire set of tableware based on this design. They are hand built from slabs of clay and have lots of character! I'm pretty happy with the form...the outside has nice impressions from my fingertips. But I still have to figure out the best way to glaze them. I applied different layers of a clear top coat on them to see what the outcome would look like. The shiny ones will work best for food service but I sure do like the way the ones that are more Matte look like. Also, I'm going to try a brown underglaze instead of the black I used. I think maybe they are too grey...brown might warm it up a bit. They are all different, I trimmed the edges uneven on purpose...I like how they stack up...looks like something the Flintstones would use! I'll be adding 3 of them MY ETSY SHOP tomorrow! They are perfect for holding tiny treasures or jewelry!
I'm also working on some handthrown scrying bowls. I found this awesome glaze called "Obsidian" that's perfect! Scrying is a magic practice that involves seeing things psychically in a medium, usually for purposes of obtaining spiritual visions and divination or fortune telling. scrying is most commonly done with a crystal ball, but you can using any smooth reflective surface, such as a bowl of liquid, a pond, stones, glass, mirrors.
And...I'm working on handthrown altar goblets too...using very 70's looking glaze...I'll have those in the shop soon!
