I am curious, in this stage of your existence what is your most loved type to make?

I adore to make vases and bowls and bottles.

What is your favourite glaze that you like to operate with?

So what I am performing now truly since I have about one hundred and fifty parts that I have bisqued but I have not glazed them for the reason that I am accomplishing glaze experiments due to the fact I have been learning glaze chemistry. And so far the glaze that I like the ideal from all the assessments that I have made was a crater glaze for the reason that I like the texture. One of them had some distinctive tones in the exact same glaze. But also these satin glazes, I love them much too.
