And here are the buttons... I made different shapes: stars, little flowers, square and hearts. These are fun to make, only problem is that since I don't have my own ceramic oven (or kiln) the times depend on the amount of pieces to be fired at the atellier... so, sometimes it takes a while.
The thing with glazing is that it never turns out the same way twice. It has to do with the chemical circumstances inside the oven. Naturally if you put red, you will get red, but the swirls will differ. If you have glazing with minerals or stones in it, you wont get the same thing every time. It adds to its uniqueness if you ask me.
The red glazing is supposed to be like that, edges here and there a bit white.
I love the blue one. I can see it with some creammy shall for instace.
The earthy tones have so many different swirls and spot...lovely. What do you think?
(clicky to make the pic larger)
I'm not sure yet how I will put them in the shop...individually, pairs... there is a limited stock...at least until I make some more (which could take a while ...errr... reasons up there).
Friday again... and a weekend packed full again...
