So, I bet you might have guessed that I would plunge in to my Pinterest projects?
As with everything pottery related, they were harder to make than I originally anticipated. The first lot I made were too thin and the handles broke when I picked them up.
My second attempt (these) are big and fat. They started life dessert spoon size. I’ll be fascinated to see how much they shrink in the drying/firing process.
I am a novice at this biz. Today when I went to Northcote Pottery I talked to the guy at the front desk about ‘cooking’ the pottery … And then I realised just how uncool I was …
I self-corrected. But still … uncool.
So I have 3 more cups getting fired for the final time. And then four spoons, a number of little bowls and a plate being bisque fired. And then they need to be glazed and fired again.
It’s hard to believe that the blue/grey will end up black, but it will.
And for these ones I put an extra coat of underglaze on. I want that black to be black, black … Fingers crossed!
Ha! I think cooking sounds way cool.. you’ll start a new trend. Spoons look ace – looking forward to seeing how they turn out.
Exciting! These look terrific…they were my favourite in the collection of ideas you posted yesterday.
Oh thanks Julianne.
They are soo cute Lea 😍
You make ‘pottery’ look so easy
