 This is one of about 6 bisqued extruded boxes Bob and I made. We weren't sure they'd even make it through the first firing without blowing, but they did! The size is about 8X8, which is pretty large. They weigh a TON. This is the first underglaze layer I painted on with Duncan Underglazes. The design wraps around the entire box.
This will go into the kiln and be fired to 06 so the underglazes bake on nicely. Then it will need to be glazed and fired again. I'll post the final glazed piece once complete. There's always a risk it will crack in the next firing, so you can't get attached to pieces. There's no way you know if it's going to make it.

The Seafood Festival website is finally up. Check out some of the illustrations I got to do for them on the site. Pretty cool. :-) Here's the link.

These are some cute little clay circles I painted with underglazes. Getting ready to fix the paints in the kiln. Once they are fixed, I'll glaze them and refire. These were alot of fun to make. My vision is to adhere ring backs to them and make some cute girlie muse rings. A super power creative ring. Each one is about 1.25" wide. Will post the finals when the next firing is done.
