well, here they are, out of the kiln, not entirely what I expected, but I’m still pleased with them, and I did have such fun making them!
but somethings not quite right.
I think they have great potential. perhaps they need to be bigger, to allow for more complicated parts and simpler parts.
perhaps also some more contrast so some of the detail and clever bits stand out more. white would be wrong, ivory is too reactive with the pinks…perwinkle? baby blue? perhaps dirty martini. hmm…
little bit stuck, I want to love them, because I had a great time making them, but somehow they don’t have something that they did have when they were hot.
and actually, this photo picks out the colours much better, the eye sees slightly more muddying of them enamels.
