I feel like I had been working on these forever. I started them over 2 months ago. I was inspired by the japanese kokeshi dolls for the shape. They are right about 8 inches tall and they were really fun to build. I wasn't sure how the galaxy witch's glaze was going to turn out but I was pleasantly surprised when it was done. I really love the colors on both of them.
Here are a couple progress pictures. I forgot to take a picture of them after they were bisque fired. I worked on these at Peacock Clay Collaborative as an open studio member. This studio is so great to work in and all the ladies are super friendly. They are built with a low fire clay.
This picture was taken after I applied the glaze. The colors look a little dull, but after firing they came out so vibrant. The glazes I used were the Amaco Velvet Underglazes that I purchased from Dick Blick Art Materials.
This is how vibrant they look after firing the glazes that I used. See below for a list of materials that I used.
I plan on making more of these but a little smaller. I have created a template to help me build them a bit faster.
Here is a list of the materials used:
The clay used was provided by the studio and it is a low fire clay.
