Winged Mug by tser

Winged Mug

tser

This piece was something of an experiment with a different glaze technique. Each side is painted using an underglaze with a detailed wing, opening around the mug. I glazed over the drawing with a tenmoku glaze -- though I had done test tiles, I honestly wasn't sure how much of the detail would be preserved, considering the shading and so on I had done on the wings. I ended up liking the effect a lot, sort of a antique, acid-stained feel to it.

I had mythology in mind when I painted it, particularly Judeo-Christian angel hierarchies (okay, okay, I'm a huge Supernatural fan, I admit it).

Cone 6 oxidation.
