Ceramics

my latest piece (not the best pics, but I haven't got round to proper shots yet. These are the "fresh out of the kiln in the studio in case anything happens to it on the way home" shots.

Thank you. Just in the snake's mouth.

Can't remember what metal it is, but it's pretty expensive because it needs to withstand two firings.

Probable Nichrome wire.

thanks all

I actually made it several years ago, but have taken years to glaze it. That's the harder part for me, commiting color to my forms. Glaze can be so unpredictable. It took so long, I couldn't remember what I'd use on the first parts, so it was a very pleasant surprise when it came out.

The giraffes are my favorite part. Is that 2 or three different colors that you used? I assume you put some on, let it dry, then put on another color for them. Details on the glazing would be intresting to me, if they aren't artist secrets


Post more, post more!!

Actually, the giraffes are one glaze. It just breaks like that -it's a liquid texture glaze. I think it was Antique Brown. The yellow/brown inside is also just one glaze. If the giraffes aren't antique brown, then the inside is...

I've been working on this for years and I didn't bother writing them down!

Funny, I heard "I Want You Just The Way You Are" at work just yesterday and noticed the line "don't want clever conversation" was immediately followed by "just want someone I can talk to." Guess he likes having idiotic discussions.
