Pottery@Home - project 2

Following on from the last project which was very popular I have devised another one. This time people will be making little bowls like in the photo.

To get the pattern, the clay is rolled onto a piece of embossed fabric until quite thin - then pushed into a cereal bowl which has previuosly been wrapped in cling film.

It's left to dry and can them be removed. I put some cobalt oxide on the pattern and wipe it off so that the oxide stays in the incised pieces. The whole pot is then dipped in a white glaze and fired.

 

I only just launched this yesterday and have already sold 8 kits! I do wish I had thought of this at the beginning of lockdown and not now!
