Yay - my ceramic vessels have all been fired! Some are less successful than others, I have to add. Here is the first one - made in a lovely terracotta clay and glazed with a white slip.
The little round dots you see are the results of a failed experiment - I stuck on round stickers before glazing in the hope that they would burn off and leave perfectly round, terracotta-coloured dots in the white glaze. Not so, I am afraid. They half-peeled off in the kiln, but the glaze prevented them from getting completely dislodged. While this makes for a very nice, arty effect, it results in a non-functional bowl, as the round dots can be chipped off by inserting your nail in the groove. I know it because I tried it. And unfortunately they do not chip off leaving perfectly round terracotta-coloured dots. So I had to artfully fix the one dot that I spoiled.
