Sometimes I just want to experiment and make things which are not necessarily for a show. So I dabbled in underglazes even though I know I suck at painting.
It's funny how even though I was experimenting, I did end up making a shape that I've done before. It's like my hands have a mind of their own.
And what looks good before firing can end up looking totally unexpected.
Or can even be considered a failure.
PS: The mushrooms in the first picture are made by the fantastic Elizabeth Lawrence.
