In my recent firing, I continued working on my “Shapes” bowl concept. To accentuate the design I carved into the bowls while leather hard, I liberally brushed glaze onto the patterns. I then donned my respirator and used a green dish-washing scrubby to remove any unwanted glaze.   Though this process generates a good amount of glaze dust (hence the respirator), I found that using a dry scrubby afforded me greater control than using a damp sponge (which always inadvertently removed glaze from where I wanted it to stay). Then, I applied more glaze and repeated the process!

Once the pattern was glazed to my satisfaction, I applied a glaze (Raw Sienna) over the entire pot. Here is the result:


Have I mentioned recently how much I LOVE Raw Sienna???  🙂
