Ceramics

My ceramics class is still so much fun!  We learned about underglaze in one of my classes this session so I tried it out.

Coaster

I made this coaster (I know it’s a little wonky) by cutting out a square of the clay, using a rubber stamp for the image and then using underglaze to paint.  It was a great learning experience.  After the coaster was bisque fired, I glazed it.  I found it interesting how the colors of the underglaze changed after glazing and final firing.  The next step will be to make some test tiles to make sure I know what the underglaze will do in order to get a consistent finished product that I like.
