More Crafty News

I visited the pottery a few days ago and worked on a few pieces.

I glazed this bowl with a wine-red or rather maroon glaze I've never really used so far. It's a bit tricky. While some glazes tend to run, this one seems to shrink and disappear when applied too thinly. I put some clear glass into the centre that has indentions filled with white glaze and as usual I'm curious what it will look like when it comes out of the kiln.

I also worked on these vases. Their insides are still unglazed in the picture but should be green after firing.
