I still have some red terracotta earthenware pieces to glaze and decorate, but decided to use up some of my stoneware and return to slip decorating on greenware, which I bisque to cone 08, then cover with a clear glaze. The final firing temperature is cone 6. I seem to be stuck on a floral pattern that I find very satisfying, and have been incorporating swirls and curves into my bowls that give a really interesting visual effect. Next week I finish up my majolica pieces.
