Bali Stamped

This hand-built slab puppy had handles, one of which was knocked off when I was in the glaze room and too near the buckets! Turned around and *wham* ...missing handle. I knocked off the remaining handle and sanded down the nubs.

Then I dipped it in Millicent's Curtains (a green semi-matte glaze with a nice "break") and wiped off all of the glaze except what remained in the imprint from the old Bali wood stamp. Then I dipped it in Falls Creek Shino and glaze fired it. The piece developed a crack from either the forming process of when I knocked off one or both of the handles - I suspect the latter because the crack didn't show up until after the glaze firing.

It's still pretty.
