Spring has arrived

It's time to revive my hibernating blog. I worked very slowly and very scarcely on my pottery this winter. In January I made this vase and glazed it a few weeks ago.

I tried to scratch a pattern (inspired by the animation films of Hungarian Folk Tales) into the glaze but it didn't work so well as it did on my test piece I made last year. I'm not so happy about it but it just shows the unpredictability of glazes. It was applied a bit too thickly I guess. I'm so intrigued by this technique, I'll try it again!
