Fishy Friday

Here  are two small prototype fish I have been working on.

Both will be glazed and single fired.  The white one on the left has it's base coat on.  The terra cotta one is still drying.  To single fire the pieces must be absolute dry before glazing. 


These are the beginning of an idea I have for larger fish whistles.  Single firing gives me results in one step.

I just realized it's the long weekend so we will be off to do errands, hopefully, before things become too crazed.

Celebrate and remember those who fought so  hard and gave so much for our country.

As always, thanks for stopping by............*s*

  1. Dearest Suzi,
    You no doubt mean the white one on the right...
    Love their forms though, the terracotta one looks very special in regard to his/her eyes.
    Hugs and happy weekend!

  2. Hi Suzi, in my post I seemed to have forgotten how to spell your name, old timers, I have rarely once fired which I did with my wall tiles in Florida, it's a convenient way to go if it works out I think. Good luck with these fish.

    1. Hi Linda...I usually reserve single firing for non-functional work. I have single fired mugs and have not seen any difference, but I still like to bisque functional and fragile stuff.
      Have a good weekend.

  3. Good work on your fishies! Somehow your camera does like mine, and focuses on the background, so the foreground is fuzzy. By the time these are fully decorated I hope to see them in focus! Thanks for commenting so frequently on my blog and fb posts!
