coppered

Return to teaching has brought me back to clay. I'm grateful for access to a clay studio with ample space to work, and wonderful colleague and laid back students.
This box is made of cone 5 stoneware, painted with copper carbonate (experimenting w/ minerals) and then a pale blue glaze. Its 5.5" x 8" x 4.5" I'm delighted with the way the copper leached through glaze resulting in metallic effects.
