The silver is left behind by the textured paper I pressed onto the bowl and will burn out in the bisque firing. Later, I'll highlight the texture with a black wash.
Texture, texture, texture.
These are bisque firing drop frame plates. I fired them nesting together like this with a little alumina hydrate sprinkled on the kiln shelf. I was concerned about warping, but so far so good. I need to investigate plate stackers for the kiln. Wonder if they would work for this shape, though.
Some black engobe brushed on then wiped off.
Sometimes I get out of the basement.
