Ceramic slab, watermelon seeds


#Ceramic _slab 

Ochre, pinky, turquoise and wine colours. The dark dots came from melting tiny pieces of glass, toguether with the red and green it reminds me of a water melon.

This slab was glazed at low temperature 800º, . When I am painting with the pigments all the colours are white before being fired, so the results are always a surprise. Sometimes the same pigment colour in the same firing can vary in tonality eg. painting in red, different pieces can come out red, wine colour, and tonalities in between those. Madrid
