Phoenix pot and platter

Here's the phoenix pot underglazed. What you can't see in this photos is the orange. All the pinky parts have underglaze on it as well. When the pot is finally fired to cone 6, you'll be able to see the orange, though I might back and add more just in case. Since I will be firing this in an electric kiln, there is less chance of the yellows and oranges burning out. This is kind of a test piece. Keep your fingers crossed!
This is the platter and stage 3 (stage 1: throwing/trimming. stage 2: bisque fired) with the sketch. Will be adding underglaze to this in the next few days. Not sure if I will fire it to cone 6 or cone 10. It will be more likely to keep its colors at cone 6. Shall have to see.


  1. Don't you just love how the unfired glaze always looks different that what you think it will look like? lol

  2. oh yeah... love it... sometimes hehe...
