♥u♥   beautiful work!!!!
did you mix the glaze yourself, or buy it premade? I'd love to have the recipe!!
You really made the colors work for you, and the concept was executed wonderfully
I love how you made the rim match the cogs, and your tape lines are so precise!!

And here I was thinking that gears were limited to metal and wood. Boy was I wrong.
These are lovely. I especially like the... I don't know what to call it... stippled? look that makes the gears look a bit like hammered metal.

Thanks. I think stippled is correct. I use a pencil while the clay is still wet.

It's a standard clear crackle fumed with ferric chloride.

Really? I'll have to see if we have some in the studio then. :) Oh, one more question... what was the clay body?

Amazing, absolutely amazing! What type of glaze did you use to create such reflective luster? I've never seen anything take on such a mirror-like shine.

Thanks. Basic white crackle sprayed with ferric chloride.

These are insanely georgous! Normally I wouldn't know what to do with a pot, but in this case it wouldn't matter. They could just sit there! The colors are great, the pattern is great, the shape is great, the decorative top is great. So basically I LOVE THEM! :+fav:

I love the contrasting textures of the gears and the smooth body. The form of the vessels and their warm brightness reminds me of an oil lamp of some sort :P some tricky photography there too!
