Enamelled dish - rescued from disaster

Post  Mead Moon on Fri Feb 15, 2013 3:49 pm

Here's the dish which I dropped and chipped the edge. Judiciously applying more enamel and two more firings rescued it and I'm now quite pleased with it. It's very small, about 65mm diameter.

I love that dish. It looks as if it belongs on a coral reef.

Don't know about many, Lynne, but I am definitely making a few more now. Learning as I go along and trying to work out the best way to support these when enamelling the inside since, if I fire with the inside uppermost, all my stilts cause massive scars on the outside enamel that are very difficult, if not impossible, to remove and leaving the outside enamel until I've done all the layers on the inside makes the copper distort.
