Boys just you wait
There is nothing quite like that first glimpse of your pieces after a successful glaze firing. Earlier this week my friend Icka kindly put a couple of my ceramic pieces into her overglaze kiln firing. I had already glazed the work a rich honey yellow colour , but I felt that the pieces needed a little something more, so I painted 14 carat gold onto the sprigged designs. Today she brought the bra and knickers to the studio and the results were fantastic. It set my mind in fast speed motion as all the "What if " ideas came rushing into my head. I have already designed a whole new bikini wardrobe and my mind is still reeling. As for my "Cod Pieces" well boys just you wait.
