Seeing Red

 


Just a two of the tiles from the last load.
I really like this red and yellow combination.
The large of the two is a tile I had made back before the fire.
It is graggy crunch from Highwater Clays. The heavy grog made it more difficult to carve, but I like the way the glazes worked on the clay body.
The Patina background came out with more green.
On the Red stone I get more yellow.
It is a good possibility it comes from the iron in the clay body.
Baby Shower this weekend for our daughter.
The weeks are going by fast--- In about 10 more weeks baby Green should be here!

Both tiles are beautiful and so interesting to see the differences the two clays have on the look of the glazes. So you're gonna be a grandma, enjoy the shower for baby Green.

When I enlarge the top tile I can really see all the halos around the leaves - beautiful.
