Surface

I've been working towards some new shapes from my initial drawings which I have previously posted. I've been busy making moulds of two of the shapes and I've begun to cast them. Here's some of the first ones out of the kiln.

I'm planning on using an earthenware slip for the next batch so I can achieve a lighter piece by casting thinner. Also I'm just about to test of some lustre painting on some of the designs. Check back soon to see progress

Photoshoot
