How do you get the green -- such as on the sprigs? Is it a glaze that is applied to specific areas then the while piece is covered in a clear (or amber) glaze?

Thanks,

Chris C. in Chicago

Hi Chris, good to hear from you. It is indeed a glaze. I use three slips, green, white and black and two main glazes, yellow and amber, with a little bit of green here and there. It's not a glaze I would want to use on food surfaces, you'd have to drink acid from it every day for a long time to do much harm, but it isn't food safe. Call in again, great to hear from Chicago!
Cheers Doug

Lovely jugs. Had a good read of your blog a while back. Came back to look at the photos!

I'm very very early days. I'll be damned if I don't get the knack before I give up though. :-)

Keep posting, it's a lovely blog.

I have family in Exeter - maybe I could pay you a visit sometime?

All the best,

David Alcock, Gloucestershire

p.s. Meant to say, I think your jugs are very bird-like - the double lip is like a bill - really nice. D
