This is my 2nd choice project. It is approximately 4.5" in height and 6" in diameter. It is glazed with a glaze that I made and named "Tiffany Blue". It was requested by the ladies. I did not employ any new techniques while making this project. One art element present in this project are the lines on the outside of the bowl. This gives the bowl a layered appearance that doesn't seem like it was made on the wheel; however, it is still symmetrical and looks good.
This is my first choice project. It is approximately 9" in height and 5" in diameter. It is glazed with a dark blue that I made myself by simply combining cobalt carbonate with clear glaze. Making this glaze was a new technique that I used while making this project. I have never added a simple compound to clear glaze before and yielded such a strong color. One art element present is simplicity. The shape of the overall project is simplistic, and this pairs nicely with the simplistic glaze. All in all, it makes it nice to look at.
This is my lidded project. It is about 4" in height and 5" in diameter. It is glazed with metallic brown, white, and a scrap. One new teqhnique I used while making this project was the making of a lid with a handle on it, sort of like a planter. One art element present in this project are the glazes. I glazed the first layer white so that when I put the layer of scrap on it would drip down, giving the appearance of water. This contrasted nicely with the earthy metallic brown.
This is my set of three. As one can see, they all share the same shape and glaze style, but they are different in size and glaze color. The largest is about 8" in height and 5.5" in diameter, and the smallest is about 4.5" in height and 4" in diameter. The tallest is glazed burnt orange; the medium of the three is glazed turquoise matte, and the smallest is glazed with a scrap. One new technique I employed while making this set of three was choking; I had to choke the neck very carefully in order to create the elongated top. One art element present is contrast. I only glazed the top half of the projects, leaving the bottom half just bisque clay. This creates a shiny/matte contrast that makes the piece more aesthetically appealing.
