Dr. Jeckyl and Mrs. Hyde

We are a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Hyde these days. We are making our usual production ware that is carbon trap shino with coloured slips, I am doing a lot of textured and patterned work with stamps and roulettes and now we are fooling with reticulated glazes that are completely non- functional. Actually they have a function- it is visual. Here are some pots from the last firing. The bowls we call Sputniks and the cut and altered plates are an investigation of the plate form with a chance to use it as a palette for the reticulated glazes.  We are having a lot of fun with the pots. As it should be!!!
