So the bottle and the pancheon have made it through the bisque firing. I have been so focused on getting them through the first firing I am totally stuck on how to glaze them. I have been working on Earthenware glazes but due to recent very sensible advice if I am working on such a
large-scale most people will want to put the pieces outside. My problem with this is that I have been using fragments of 16th century pottery within my work which from previous tests just end up as a horrible brown sticky mess at stoneware temps. I also want to maintain the colours and the layering of slips and underglazes, hmmm this might take a while to work out.
More pics of jug (2) work in progress.
