More Samples of Color Glazes

These cups are a part of my experiments with underglazes and celadons...all commercial glazes, used in combination with eachother to hopefully achieve some unique colors and textures. In the process of layering underglazes, I discovered that I could carve through the layers to reveal the colors that were underneath...much like the old style of scratchboards we made and drew on as kids...more experiments with layering, scraping away, incising, and sanding..are in the works.
The other cups here were made using ceramic underglaze pencil, and then layered with various colors of Coyote brand celadons...these colors are great to  work with and there are several colors to choose from..the pencil line ran, planning to continue to  explore this method as well.
