So far so good. My little cool-ice test doggies fell over,but the melding of sgraffito and the body is quite nice. Everything else seems to have survived although the urn is a bit over the top colour wise. Maybe I should have stuck to a smaller palette.Those colours worked together on other pots. Still it has a crazy kind of folk-art thing going on. Remember ; More IS more. I'd better unload it all before I make too many judgements. Pottery! Who would put themselves through it?
