My clay figure “The Silence” has been finally fired and glazed! After a nice conversation about the benefits of glazing here on WordPress with my dear friend Patty (thank you, Patty, without you I wouldn´t have had the idea to do this!), I decided to give my figurine a kind of semi-glaze.
This means that after firing I did put the glaze on as usual, but then washed most of it off with a sponge, so that the glaze would only settle in the furrows and grooves.
Would love to hear what you all think of it!
And for those of you who´ve always wondered what this “secret artist” might look like, here a pic with me beside the kiln 😉
