Waterfall Glaze on sushi plates

I received an e-mail from a friend recently, he said he was busier than a one-armed paper hanger. I'm not sure that's PC, but I can relate.

It seems as if every time one project gets completed, another is lurking in the wings. On top of that, clay is my BIGGEST distraction. So even though I have every intention of finishing up the tile sets I've been making, I keep making new sushi dinnerware sets. Here are some of the small sushi plates/soy bowls that I pulled from the kiln this week.

These dishes are part of small sushi sets I have been selling on Etsy.com. And since I recently expanded my shipping zones to include Europe, I've been getting a great deal of interest in these sets. Who knew?

Here's a link to that Etsy page.

In the book "Mastering Cone 6 Glazes", there is a recipe for Waterfall Brown, a gorgeous glaze that I've written about extensively in past blogs. These plates show some versions of that glaze that I've developed - a gold version, and a light blue version. This picture doesn't do them justice.

Incidentally, I took a sushi making class a local kitchen store that I adore, and started making my own rolls at home. If anyone wants the recipe for
a killer spicy tuna roll, e-mail me.
