I put terra sig on my big pot today, I decided to sawdust fire it since I won't be able to lift it out of my raku kiln. Forethought would have been good when I was building this thing! Then I thought, hmmmm..... what if I put terra sig on my mugs since I still haven't figured out what to do with them, and then I thought what about some underglaze and some stain..... and before I knew it I had a bunch of cups ready to go into the bisque! I think I like where this is going. I used to be a set designer and one of the things I regularly got stuck doing was faux finishing walls, floors, furniture. Staining these cups felt a lot like that and then a little light went off and I thought, why haven't I tried to apply that to pottery before? It's so simple, it's what I know! Let's hope the firing doesn't take this patina away too much, I really like them like they are, but sadly bone dry pottery won't hold liquids :)
Looks like a pumkin doesn't it!
and then there is Mick! I have had this poster since I was in High School. Can you believe that! Anyway, he is in my studio and I had my camera so I thought I would snap a pic for ya!
