Butterflies by lisaluera Butterflies by lisaluera
Butterflies, August 2007

- Wheel thrown porcelain
- Crystalline glaze
- Fired to cone 9 in an electric kiln

This is one of the pots I made in the most recent workshop I attended. It was a crystalline glaze workshop. You can see it bisqued with all of it's friends here. [link]

This pot did not get many crystals, but I think it actually suited the form really well. I couldn't have placed the crystals better myself, and they look like little butterflies flying around. The pot exudes a certain serenity that I just love.

I actually got a brand new digital camera, a little light tent, and a couple of lights to help with my photos. Even so, this proved to be one tough pot to photograph! That transparent, celadon like glaze acted like a perfect mirror! Gah!
