not so white....






I went up to the studio this afternoon to add just a little to these white on white tiles and as always got a bit carried away, maybe i'm just not ready for white on white yet! I'll just go with touches of colour for now...
I've used some red glaze, a bit of copper slip and some amber glaze.. I'm treating theses tiles more like canvas and working and adding some marks and some slip and wiping it out if i don't like and continuing till something emerges from the surface that i like...

Leaving these for now as tomorrow is the big day we fire up the kiln at the club...'big mumma' is waiting! news tomorrow....

  1. Sometimes I can't leave things alone either. I did like the white on white when you first showed them though, was it wet in the original photo? It looked so creamy and smooth. But then again sometimes when I play with things a bit something cool turns up.
