Decoration Begins

Our group met up again on Thursday for a day of exploring decoration techniques. We looked at  under-glaze sponge printing and painting, incising and inlay and on-glaze transferes.  It was great to see how the designs work on the three dimensional forms and I think we all had a sense of the project really starting to come together.

All of the bowls are now made and so it is over to me to get them ready in time for our Bowling event at Buckhaven Community Centre on the 25th November. All are welcome, so look out for flyers in and around Buckhaven or check back for details to be posted on this Blog.
