Clay moulds (Make Your Mark)Posted: May 9, 2016
Following on from the moulds I made yesterday embedding leaves in clay I spoke to Martin regarding the next stage of the development of this outcome with the intention of making a bowl vessel shape. He was quite pleased about the quality of the pieces shown and recommended I get them fired as soon as it is possible hopefully by Thursday for backwashing and putting in a kiln for glass slumping after being bisqued. For the moment I need to concentrate on etching out the details so they’re more visually noticeable and order the suitable colour frits from Creative Glass an online glass supplies store and test things out to see what works and what doesn’t. Im pleased with the progress and will now work on dealing with the other criteria of the brief and other projects while I wait for materials to be delivered and pieces to be fired.
