New Glaze Shino Cone 6

 Learning about the behavior of Shino Gold
 over Plum glaze  is exciting .  It seems to be
 a stable glaze which isn't running
off the pot but does a modest melting
slide which brings out the texture.
    Wax resist and stencil design
 held their own with nice soft edges.

Some New Stoneware

This firing added some new work using my art nouveau  glaze
 with  17% copper carb as apposed to 20%  which seems
  a little paler and may have slightly less texture.
The geranium leaf press mold  connected by clay coils
 and pebbles provides more changes in depth for glaze
 to  increases the texture.
  The treatment of the foot is practical and enhances the vase.
