The finished ring jug, I was a little disappointed, my mistake I thought the octopus would look cool in the natural clay. Now after seeing the jug I feel the octopus would have been better with color.
Below I wanted to share a few of the kiln mates of Mr. Octo
Above beer mugs, I like the one on the left, he will go on EBay soon. I thought what the heck I am going to give it a try, wish me luck!!! ;-) The mug on the right whom I call Evil Eyes will go into my etsy store. The glaze on evil eyes did not do exactly what I thought it would do.
The jug top left was washed in iron oxide no glaze on outside but glazed inside. I really like how he turned out, I have sold a few styled this way. I am sorry about the pigs picture I tried three times to get a good picture but still a little on the fuzzy side. But I still wanted to share.
As always it is a learning experience when I open the kiln.
