I am going to be the Art and Craft Supervisor at our new family art cafe, 'Bean & Brush' :) Although it's not opening until the beginning of May '11 I've got lots to do...starting with some ceramic training yesterday and Monday as we'll be offering 'paint a pot' as well as other craft classes/parties.
This is my new boss, Michelle, she's lovely. I forgot to take pictures on day 1 but got a few yesterday. Here Michelle is removing the glaze from the inside of the vase very cleanly...
...mine, on the otherhand, went everywhere lol! Apparently though, the thing with biscuitware/bisque is to let any mistakes dry first before fixing them-and this wiped off beautifully once it had dried!!!
The training was very much along the lines of producing a piece exactly the same as the tutor's, something I struggled with! This was only supposed to have one flower on it ;)
No, this isn't one of mine, but I can't wait to play with glazes to get this kind of effect :) And how cool and Alice-like are these coffeepots?
And guess what? You can even stamp on bisque - how cool is that!!! :)
