SLAB FOOTED BOWLS
clay, glaze, oxides
I was going thru my pictures this weekend
and found one more Slab Footed Bowl that I really want to share.
It was made by junior Ylia Madayag and it's gorgeous.
Everything that Ylia makes is incredible
sadly a piece chipped off the rim of this before it made it into the kiln for the Bisque firing,
and couldn't be repaired.
So I suggested to Ylia to chip off more pieces all the way around.
It was scary but she did it and balanced the top rim out.
But it was the way she glazed it that really made it come alive.
Ylia stained it with Cobalt Carbonate,
wiped off the stain from the top surface so that the oxide remained in her crevices,
then dipped it into the Transparent glaze.
Then she went back over top the glaze with a brush dipped into Cobalt
and put even more oxide into her incised areas to achieve a remarkable look.
You should have heard the oohs and ahhs when it came out of the kiln.
