Tortoise and the Hare



I made these plates thinking of dinner but I did cut the foot ring so that they can be hung on the wall. Using a copper slip that when glazed with shino and sprinkled with wood ash faux wood fire style turns to a blood red copper. The funny thing is the area of paper resist will be the part that turns red. The copper seems to migrate to the area that doesn't have slip. It's a mystery for Grass to ponder. I understand from Face Book he just got married. That means after being with Judi for over 30 years he can now sleep with her. The classic case of the tortoise and the hare. He finally got there.
