Peacock Bowl

I was introduced to ceramics about 3 years

ago and, although I am not particularly great at painting, I do enjoy making something once in awhile. Before Christmas, I saw an advertisement for what the shop owner called a Peacock Bowl. I have been wanting for some time to make a couple for my granddaughters, so I signed up for a class last month.

Stephanie, our instructor, assured us that this was something that would be pretty hard for us to mess up. LOL...

First, we painted the entire bowl with a couple of layers of white base coat. Then, we painted the design with several different colors. While that was drying, we

painted the back side of the bowl with three coats of black paint.

To finish it, we painted two coats of a gray, grainy paint and left the bowls to dry. The following week, Stephanie fired them. The special paints and gray coating blended together and THIS is what came out!!

A beautiful Peacock Bowl!
