I was delighted when the first five plates came out of the glaze fire.
The colours of the glazes were as I had hoped and planned. The lighting with my husband's camera is very true (he is the workshop facilitator and always takes pictures of each kiln shelf as he unloads a firing).
Though there is a yellow tinge to pictures taken with my camera phone, the closeups show the linework
and glaze textures on the plates.
These closeups also show the individual designs of each plate and the different lighting
makes it apparent that there is also a texture on the plates, from the initial rolling of the terracotta.
The clay was rolled out between two cotton cloths with a herringbone pattern, and though this is subtle, it is quite lovely.
