porcelain firing fri nov 25th

...continuing the bulb theme for college project, experimental casting in porcelain with sgrafitto text. I had hoped for more deformation - guess cast too thick. It does show up light nicely with a little LED placed inside.

... and exploring lighting further with slip-cast jars lit with tea-lights ...

Testing out sprigging, stamping and sgrafitto. None entirely successful but I like the sgrafitto look best so far. The sprig does not work here but still has potential and silhouettes well - its a bit cartoonish for this project. The stamping is a bit subtle but works ok when there is quite a lot of text. Gets lost on single names.
