Bird girl glazed
Here is the first bird girl after glazing. I really love her from the waist up. The mixture of the green and the pinkish brown is really sweet. I also love the way the green gets darker in the crevices and bring out her features. I don't however, like the streakiness on her legs. Mr. Pizio says that he is mediocre at best with the green. My intern for the semester wasn't that enamored of it at first but likes it better the more we look at it ( agreeing with the streaky issue ). What do you think?
The conundrum is that I have quite a few of these built. I want them all to have the same glaze. My intern has made glaze tests for colors that I have been thinking of but unfortunately the tests are limited. It is hard to imagine what the colors will look like on the actual pieces. So I have to use the pieces as tests sometimes.
