Pet project

These are my pet fish: pygmy gourami (trichopsis pumilus) in the cup, and dwarf rasbora (boraras maculatus) on the saucer. Not sure what color I'll glaze the outsides... This is the porcelain I threw last spring.

Finished fishes

The covered fishbowls turned out pretty well!

Here's the inside of the shino (orangish) bowl.

And here's the inside of the sage green bowl.

And here are the latest finished fish lanterns.

I tried something new on this little guy. I layered Georgie's "copper patina" glaze over Laguna's "pippin green." Many thanks to my pottery classmate Alison, who discovered the combination!
