The first draft of the mini comic I am illustrating with Rachael Stanford is completed. I will be posting it like a serial, one page at a time.
I finally succeeded in making a larger plate that didn’t crack. This 8 x 8″ plate is similar in style, with the tree of life in the center, and similar colors (Blue Opal, Iridescent green, and Iridescent Violet) as the smaller 5 x 5″ plate I made a few months ago. Yay! Cross your fingers for dinner platters next.
So far my attempt at making big plates has failed again. This plate did not crack because it dried too fast on the edges, but rather it warped in the kiln and the glaze on the bottom edges stuck to the kiln, forcing a crack.
