Thank god I could finish the green work before my short trip.
In Japan, Black Sesami Frozen Yogurt is popular, and it is really black. Looking for the nice black from clay, I tested Cassius Basalt Black from Aaardvark. Cone 6 firing of bare clay gives a nice mature black color. It also gives a little metallic texture, which give me an impression of graphite. I better test how it looks with several clear glaze application.
Greenware is finished, and I will spend about a week for drying. I still remember that one sculpture I worked at RLCC cracked really bad because of rash drying. I have to convince myself to be patient.
At the same time of making Boar, making a test for a new idea. My miscalculation is that it is taking a lot longer.
