I don't know about you but I am always always open to new ideas no matter where they come from. There I was sitting with a friend when they said 'Could you make a plate with a fish skeleton on it?' Mmmm I thought, yes I can, 'What sort of fish were you thinking of?' 'Oh any fish will do!'replied my friend.
I am now experimenting with the skeletons of fish and keeping the designs simple. The first attempt failed, it developed a huge dome bubble during firing, together with several smaller ones, although quite effective - they were interspersed between the bones. Once I have the firing down pat, I might expand on this and produce coasters too. Had a number of fishermen ask if I can incorporate a fish hook into my designs, always aiming to please, I will be conducting a number of inclusion tests over the next couple of weeks.
