Ceramics - Slab Bowl - WIP#3

Finished the design work on the slab bowl today. Just need to let it dry for the week then it can be bisque fired and then glazed.

I decided not to make the hand perfectly human and just the one. There are small circles (like air bubbles) across the plain surface of the bowl but they are hard to see in this picture (I forgot my good camera today so had to take this with my phone).

We'll be using a honey glaze on this bowl, and also a blue glaze, which I think will work really well with this. I'll do some glaze testing next week.

We are also beginning to prepare for a raku firing, creating some pinch pots for that. Photos of those next week.
