Glaze results

A few quick shots to show the glazed pieces I mentioned a few posts back. The blackbird slip is working pretty well. I need to mix up a new batch. I tried edging the rim with the slip and it flaked off and resisted the glaze in some areas. I like the look of the dark outline but have to figure out how to control the flaking. I may have waited longer than normal to paint in the slip design, so the underneath clay may have been drier that it should have. New problem solving required. I also had a blue bowl but I think the glaze is too dark for this design.

I'm really liking both of these plates. Being a nature kind of person, I love the trees motif. Looking forward to seeing more of these. The slip you are mentioning is intriguing to me, I will have to follow along to learn more. I have just begun with my endeavors in decorating ceramics pieces.
