Spring Pots: Batch 1

"Sunshine & Roses" Mugs and Tray
^6 porcelain, hand-built using textured slabs
Glaze: Tacoma Clay Art P-Series "Papaya" & TCA "Basalt"

"Winter Sun" Mugs
^6 porcelain, wheel-thrown, carved
Glaze*: Inside--Iridescent Blue (TCA) Outside--Iridescent blue sponged over Ivory (TCA)
*I would call this a "use at your own risk" glaze combo.  This used to be a set of 4 mugs, but one bubbled really bad, and the other ran down and stuck to the kiln shelf. So obviously there is some unpredictability at work here.

Colander Fun!
"Rose Coral" Colander and Dish Set
^6 porcelain, wheel-thrown, altered
Glaze: I did all kinds of weird things to this one!  I started by sponging on an irregular layer of Melon Underglaze from SPS. Then I layered on 3 coats of Ivory from TCA.  To top it off, I sponged on another thin application of "Chun Plum" from the Amaco Potters Choice Glazes. 

"Apple a Day" Colander
^6 porcelain, wheel-thrown, altered
This one is for givaway over at my other blog
Glaze: Light application of SPS Blue-Green Underglaze, 2 coats TCA Ivory over that, and flecked with TCA iridescent blue.

L: "Blue Lagoon" Collander, R: "Beluga Bubbles" Colander and Dish
^6 Porcelain, wheel-thrown, altered
L: Glaze--Iridescent Blue, R: Glaze--same as "Apple a Day" Colander above
