Fresh and hot out of the kiln this lovely little cat faced baby. You can't really tell from the picture but i used a slightly grogged clay which fired to a very pale pink. It shows through under the glaze and gives it a lovely speckledy effect. So many clays and not enough time. Does anyone have any experiece in using coloured decorative slips? I picked up a bottle of white ready mixed and a bag of cobalt blue stain the other day. The lady in the shop said that i should mix 8g of stain to 1 litre of white slip to get a good strong colour, any ideas? As with all of my ceramic experiments it is very much trial and error. I'm slightly worrying now though as i will be showing my new work at the Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracey in June, so i need to get my arse in gear and start making lots.
I think Dot has inherited my making gene, this is her cow.
