In addition to today's video, I have also decided to update my blog more regularly. With the exception of this Sunday, I will still be showcasing new pieces of work on Sunday's and talking about the form and function, but I will be also now be posting a blog on Tuesday nights showcasing some throwing through a video on Youtube!
Another conscious decision that must be made when designing a bowl is the glaze used. Whether the finished piece is supposed to be for functional or decorative from the potter's eye, one must remember that the buyer of the piece may use it for either. With that in mind, when glazing the bisque piece, I prefer to use glazes that are non-toxic and labeled dinnerware safe. This information can usually be located on the glaze bottle itself, if this information is not on the bottle, a quick check to the manufacturer's website usually will reveal this information. If in doubt, don't use it.
Thanks for reading!
