New Pot – Flowers and Yellow

I discovered this applique technique just before finishing the course and I wish I had had more time to explore it further. I also developed a new style of lip with this pot by thinning and cracking the dry clay. I had previously discovered that glaze Antique Pewter produces a green verdigris colour when mixed with ordinary white glaze, so I applied it over white glaze to produce the green colours on this pot.

Verdigris and Flowers

New pot – White and Verdigris

I used Antique Pewter and white glazes to produce the verdigris effect, which on this particular pot is more of an aquamarine colour than the mossy green that I always seemed to get thereafter.
