What I found on the attic

Earlier this week, I went to the attic to get my box of samples and book of recipes I have made over the years. I loved the samples that I made in my first year of artschool. These look so organised as a sample. They are just simple engobes. They are brought onto the clay when it's almost dry but still feels a bit wet.
The other set of samples is from my last year in artschool. I made over 30 samples just to find the right glaze for my work. It took me ages but I finally found it!
It became this one. I just love the craquelé effect on it. It makes the work kind of vulnerable.If you want to see the whole work, you can visit this blogpost.
