I have been working recently on trying to develop a range of bowls to further reflect my love of the the coast.

Thrown in porcelain (tricky in its own right!) I have been working through various techniques to try and come up with the desired result.

I have hand drawn a pencil outline (that burns off in the kiln) onto the biscuit ware then used Royal Blue amaco underlgaze to fill in the shape.  I have then scraped (or sgraffito) through the glaze to reveal the white porcelain underneath to add some depth to the design.

Unfortunately I think I have put the underglaze on too thick so the sgraffito detail has been lost a bit in the glaze fire, but I quite like how the mussel bowl has turned out.

Here they are…What do you think?
