I recently bought a bag of black clay just for the fun of it. Glazes have different results when used on different clays. I made a lot of pieces, but when it comes to the glazing part most likely I will only glaze half and see how they come out. After I see the results I may change things in order to get maybe better results if by chance the first batch is a dud. Below are some pictures I took with my phone, not the best but you can see some work in progress.
And the picture on the left brings me to ask a question, do you like thin or thick pendants? A lot of people think that because they are made of ceramics they are heavy. And they are not, but I've noticed at some shows that people really take a look at them and sometimes just ignore the thick ones. When I suggest they pick them up and feel how light they are it surprises them. I think both thickness give the pieces different looks. Thin is delicate maybe a softer look design on a necklace. Thicker is bulky, earthy maybe more of a casual simple necklace with leather cord or swede.
What would you prefer to use in your work? Do you have a preference? Leave me a comment please and let me know what you think.
