Frost

When I returned from my course at Greenwich House Pottery, I immediately put my new porcelain techniques into practice. Particularly the tooling element, so as to make my pieces translucent.

The first step was to buy a particular kind of clay with high translucency, and which I could fire in an electric kiln. The chosen favourite was Laguna’s Frost.

And here are the pics of the first piece finalised! As you can see, it is HIGHLY translucent and just beautiful to look at (or at least I think it is). But this is the first of many more Frost pieces to come. You see, it is a very picky clay, that breaks very easily. And what you see in the image below under the candle is indeed a crack, because it cracks just by looking at it. Still, I am looking forward to being able to understand its fickleness and document on here how I mastered it!
