Majolica Glazing

HoustonS09

You are going to be using a majolica-like technique to glaze your recently thrown bowls. Having done the majolica research and seen examples from around the world, Please plan out in your sketchbook two designs, one geometric, one organic.

• On one the subject matter should be traditional, have radial symmetry, and be based on imagery from at least one of the pieces you found.
• On the other you should use imagery of your own choosing, yet it should reflect a personal interest or interests.
• All work must be planned, in color, before you begin, and in your sketchbook.
• You will be starting with three even coats of opaque white and adding one coat of Underglaze for each color. (please see examples).
• You will be assessed on your planning and care with glazing. Your pots themselves will have already been assessed.
