I have been slowly finishing up a set of majolica dishes for myself. I wanted something completely different than my usual look and since I adore the beautiful red pots of so many other potters (Ayumi Horie, Kari Radasch, Ron Philbeck etc...), I ventured into earthenware.
I LOVE it. I loved throwing with it. I loved decorating it. I still have noodle bowls and plates to decorate. And a cake stand. When I get the time, I will finish those up.
Set of hanging bowls in my kitchen:
Feeling a very strong urge to do a serious red earthenware/majolica exploration. Not sure if it will actually see fruition or not. Wondering if it such a prudent idea to jump around in what I produce. I'm always telling myself that I need to focus and establish myself. But man, are the ideas swimming around in my head.
I'm not crazy about the actual decorating that I did, need to work on my drawing skills abit. But enjoy the overall feel. Maybe I can warm up the majolica base (with red iron? anyone? I'm using Linda Arbuckle's recipe.)
