On Thursday, we did two workshops. The first of these was underglaze painting. We used ceramic pigments mixed with water, and some pencils that are specifically for use on biscuit fired ceramics.
Above is my plate, which features a continuous line drawing of one of the houses I lived in during my childhood. I really like the outcome of this, as the colours are subtle but work very well with the drawing. I think I will probably use this technique for my final collection of plates, as I think it’s the technique that works best with my theme.
We also learnt some on clay techniques like scraffito but I forgot to take photos! I will upload some when my pieces have been fired.
