Back in early April I took a Ceramics Workshop with John Dix where my novice hands created 2 little cups and a few buttons to be kiln fired during the Golden Week holiday here at Shiro Oni Studio in Gunma, Japan.
Picked up my pieces yesterday and I’m super happy with the results!
One of my cups came out absolutely perfect, the glazing is a natural result of the type of firing, not anything that I did to achieve it.
The buttons I made survived, they are not very big and I thought they may become lost amongst the larger pieces but they look wonderfully raw.
There is very little glazing, only the smallest spot on each but that’s ok, they’ll still look great with a hand-spun crocheted item.
My second cup with the adorable pinched ball feet is still whole but it became fused with other pieces so it is not usable and probably not salvageable.
