As part of this firing, I test fired a few mythological mugs.
This was the glaze that I was most happiest with for this project, on ‘The Real Housewives of Athens” mug:
This glaze below didn’t do a bad job either at ensuring the incised design showed up. I will probably use it again.
And of course, the glaze I thought would work best was my least favourite:
I may try a reglaze on this mug during my next firing.
Being a potter and an artist is a journey of continual learning, and sometimes we learn the most from our mistakes.
I am also working on a design where I will use slip I am colouring on a white mug background and will also test some additional glazes until I find more colour variants that make me happy.
Of course there will be more puns of mythological proportions coming too!
You might get some Deja Brew 😉
