I wanted to try a new shape with this one (thanks Mary, your pieces inspired this one). I also wanted to try our new Licorice glaze... and it is definitely a cone 6 or 7. At cone 5, it leaves a lot of gold looking specks throughout the glaze, almost giving the piece a yellow look. I dipped the blue first and overlapped the licorice. The blue is also a cone 6 or 7. At cone 5 it doesn't fully develop the full blue color. Having said all that, I think it turned out rather nice.
This one was experimental. I used a Conrad Black stain on the top band (outside) and the bottom and feet. Then I filled the inside with an Oribe, painting it on the outside with the same Oribe. To finish it off, after the first glaze firing (cone 5), I fired it again with a very nice clear to cone 6. The second firing gave it some very nice runs and color changes. The feet turned out especially nice on this bowl.
