Pots with Faces

Hi blog, long time no blog. Here I am! Around Christmas time I got very much into making pots with faces at my pottery class. A great excuse to get on the wheel for the majority of the 12-weeks of the class, with a few sessions of nose-making in-between.

My favourite facepot / pothead is this one above. I used crackleglaze and tin white glaze over the top of that, which is a no-no in the world of pottery, nothing goes over crackle! But it made a lovely texture and colour, not dissimilar to a duck egg.

A few of the faces had feet, these were the most popular ones and flew off the shelf when I had a Christmas stall at the Picton Street Fayre to sell them all off.
