My first leaf plates just came out of a kiln. The lizards should have a touch of green here and there, but over all I'm happy with them.
These were made of brown stoneware, bisque-fired to ∆5, brushed on thin layers of DUNCAN Courtyard Art Glazes, and then glaze-fired to ∆06. I mid-fired them first in order to make the functional ware durable. Don't fire the particular glazes higher than ∆06. At ∆04 they lost the matte antique look.
The olive colored glaze I used on the lizards were not green enough. I'm going to underglaze in green before adding the DUNCAN glazes.
Yes, my works are for sale….
