I thought, as I am experimenting at the moment, that it made sense to use a combination of decorative finishes. So I burnished the top and bottom and scratched my swirl pattern into it. I intend only to fire this once and not glaze it. The plan is to use it for dry storage, pasta etc.
It should give me a good idea as to the practicality of this type of ware. We will have to wait and see how it fires.
Thanks for visiting.
