air brush

My first trial of the airbrush glazer is a success! Here are the results.. my ever favorite Floating blue over white, although this is a darker clay than I normally use. I actually think this might have been the earthenware low fire clay, which I fired to cone 6 (oops) so it warped slightly, but I'm still happy with the results. The little swishy ribbon on the side is actually an indent in the clay, not just a glaze effect. It was one of the techniques we learned at that workshop.

Edited to add: I forgot to give the dimensions of this bowl. It is about 5.25 inches tall and 8.5 across at the top rim.
