Striped Tea Bowl

I had a definite vision for this little tea bowl and I was bowled over when it came out of the kiln exactly as I imagined it.

It is glazed in our bamboo glaze and our teal blue. Where they overlap, a lovely jade green appears. I am so pleased my lines are parallel and the glazes stayed put. Usually when I overlap glazes, I want the glaze to run. but in this case I was hoping for clean lines.

I don't test all my glaze combinations. I know - I should be ashamed, but I really enjoy this risky part of ceramics.

beautiful, and I'm with you on risk. I know I should make prototypes out of base metal, but I love the process of discovery and the beauty of accidents. It's also nice to have things stay where you put them sometimes. :)
