We went back to Tiramisuzi’s studio last weekend to glaze our pinch pots. Suzi gave us a quick lesson on the difference between glazes and underglazes. The most important thing beginners need to know is that underglazes, after firing, would have a close-to-consistent color as prior to firing, while glazes, after firing, may be colored differently compared to its initial color after applying the glaze.
I chose to use Malachite which is a shade of teal on the outside and a vivid orange glaze on the inside. I lined the rim of the pot with white underglaze then added a transparent glaze on top so that the white lining becomes shiny.
Katrina used crackling painting China Seal, which is close to a sea foam color, as the main color of her pinch pot and she lined the rim with a bright yellow underglaze for a pop of color. She also put on a coating of transparent glaze to make the lining on the rim shiny.
The glaze was quick to dry and, before we knew it, we had put on the recommended 2-3 coats per color. We can’t wait to see the fired pots.
