Spontaneous Cup Form Follow-Up
So after much procrastination, I finally have gotten a picture of the finished product from the previous post. If memory serves me correctly, I glazed the entire cup in amber and then sprayed oribe in the crevice, heavy in the middle and feathering it out. I thought that I had put on enough of the accent glaze, but I think not. As you can see, it was pretty much a dud. The only thing that I really like about it are the "buttons" at the top. They got a very nice flecking. Now I just need to remember if I had done anything special in them. I am usually very good about writing down what I have done, but it wasn't in my journal, so hopefully I jotted it down in my spiral.
There you have it. If I do this again, I will definitely use iron oxide on the outside with a liner glaze, most likely oribe or black. Thanks for all of the comments on the first post. They have definitely influenced my current work (see my other blog for that).
