I made Taos Small Serving Bowl on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. The clay is a tan to light brown color.
I trimmed a slight foot and after the bowl was dry, I fired it in my electric kiln. This is called the bisque fire and it makes the pottery permanently hardened but still porous enough to take on glaze.
Taos Small Serving Bowl gets its surface beauty from a combination of 4 glazes. I dip the piece in the blue and the green, then I pour areas of cream. For the final touch, I drizzle, drip, and pour a red gold glaze. The melding of the four creates a unique yet consistent effect. Often, the effect is a landscape of mountains, clouds, sky, and sun, although not in literal terms.
