Hot out of the kiln. More Day of the Dead Mugs.
The last time I made them, I didn’t add handles. So of course people asked me to make handles! These vessels are a grey stoneware. In hindsight I probably should have used white clay like I did on my first try. Either way they a plenty funky and plenty fun.
I was even a good girl and loaded them onto my etsy store today. They are officially ready to find a new home :)
Just dropped these to the kiln today.
I wheel threw the heads and hand-built the bases. Then, I painted them with underglazes.
The first time I made these I didn’t add handles and everyone at my holiday shows said “can you make these with handles?” Yep. Handles it is!
When they come out of the kiln I will rub them with black underglaze and then apply some regular glazes. It’s the part I am most nervous about. At this point I am in for many many hours and I can very easily ruin them by choosing or applying the glazes wrong.
I shall hold my breath ;)
