Construct, Deconstruct, Slip-cast, Fold and Pin

I've been having a great time with slip-casting recently, some exciting shapes and forms appearing! Here's what's been happening in the workshop:

unfired experiments, cast with terracotta slip
eddoe cast with nail/pin additions
The terracotta palette: unfired, bisque fired to 1000'c, fired to 1100'c and high fired to 1260'c
bisque fired experiments - the blackened pins are lovely! 
how I would use the palette tests to decide on colours (left sample is an 1180'c firing - so black cherry warm!)
experimenting with pins and porcelain
and more porcelain forms

I'm interested in what's happening and my next task is to consider how to include some of my latex sampling. I am keen to use some of the colourings and glaze tests that I did last week too so we will see where this takes me next...
