Dipped No’16 – The Results…

…. are slightly disappointing!

As the picture shows, the glaze has not settled well. Even though I don’t hate the results (it would be nice if it could be controlled and incorporated into the design of a piece), it’s not the finish I want for my trugs.

I do love the colour though, so all is not lost! I am trying to remain positive!

I have spoken and sent pictures to an incredibly knowledgeable technician at a well known ceramic materials manufacturer to see if he can shed a light on these issues. I had put in an order for some new glaze materials, but have put this on hold until I can really get to the bottom of these problems. Ceramics is a costly business, so I need to make sure I’m making well-informed decisions at the moment!

Let me know what you think...
