I actually find that the edge that snapped off adds to the piece...it makes it even more earthy than it would have been. It doesn't look like a mistake...
It helps in giving the impression that it's a delicate and time worn piece. This would look fantastic in a very modern or contemporary setting...it would tone down the coolness of that style and provide excellent contrast.
It was made in a plaster mould...the clay was spread out and then the holes were made in it pushing through to the plaster...as the clay dried and came away from the mould the pattern on the outside wall became stronger.
Thank you...the lightness of the pieces actually causes problems sometimes, as there isn't enough clay to suck in the water and get the glaze to stick.....they take ages to dry before firing....but I've got used to that now and make compensations! Thanks for the fav!
Hehe, thanks...I guess it's just that it's not intentional, therefoore, I see it as a defect, whereas someone looking with fresh eyes may see it differently! One of my pierced leather hard pieces recently fell apart completely....I am going to glaze it, stick it back together and replace any missing bits with white miliput....so it has the look of an archaeological piece in a museum.... Thanks for the fav!
