Ceramics: Family Portrait Trivet

Ok, ok – this one is a little sketchy….I had this disk left over on the last day of class that I had originally intended to use for the base of a sculpture. I postponed that project until next class and didn’t want to waste the clay.

Enter – family portrait. Here is my husband, the goblin, me, and our three cats. The clay was a bit dry.

After completing the carving, I added some black underglaze and then clear after bisquing for the final firing. A little felt to the bottom and boom. personalized (and silly) trivet.
