Sometimes, you have to cut yourself a break. I've been doing these wooden stamp impressions and trying to get the glaze to cut me a break. I tried celedon, temmoku, ash glaze etc, etc. I haven't settled on a glaze that pools and breaks sufficiently to really show off the pattern. So today after what seems likes weeks since I've been in the studio I painted into the impressions a Zirconium saturated glaze. My hope that this will show thru my glazes and show off all the work I've gone to. I must be out of my mind since this current work is taking me forever. Forever to stamp the cup, then forever to paint on the white glaze and then more forevers in washing the glaze off the high spots. I really think I need to give myself a raise on these cups.
