    Really nice pieces, Rosa! Good on ya!
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    OK everyone, here are my first completed masterpieces!
    The blue and white ones were glazed with a fun technique called bubble glazing. You make a mixture of glaze, water and dish soap in a cup, insert a straw and blow bubbles until they are spilling over the cup. You drip the bubbles on your pot and then you get this fun kind of tie-dyed look. The square dish was another technique called kohiki, where a thick glaze is applied with a textural brush, and you make patterns of lines or swirls or circles. I overglazed this with a greenish/blue glaze.
    It is a lot of fun, and we started another 8-week round of classes today.

    Wow! I’m not sure which is my favorite. The blue and white glazed pieces are attractive.But the darker blue bowl is quietly handsome.

    I am really getting quite a bit of joy from this class. I was SO excited to see how the glazed pieces would come out. It was the first thing I thought of when I opened my eyes this morning, much like a kid on xmas morning.

    They are marvelous! I love the blues and the textures are so cool. Glazing is tricky or at least long ago when I made a vase...wasn't sure if the color would be what I wanted. That was in 1969...I still use it for daffodils...it's purpose.
