Ceramics week 8

A week ago I made these in preparation for Monday's class -
The two in the centre got dipped. Based on the difficulty and floppiness and general mess of it all, I'm using sturdier wire for the next batch.

But first - these came out of the kiln - earthenware casting slip, fired to stoneware -
They're heavier than the porcelain, and not as white.



Also, some bits of paper clay -
And this is what went into the kiln -
It includes more paperclay, with snippets of metallic organza incorporated, rolled out with a hexagonal pencil.
