Earthenware trials and tribulations

So some of the Amaco velvet underglaze colours don’t do so well at stoneware temperatures so I’ve done a bit of earthenware experimenting using Potterycrafts CWE 12.5 white earthenware clay. The result is the coasters below. Most are painted with the velvet underglaze colours and glazed with Scarva high gloss clear but I tried out one with Botz turquoise crackle and did a quick drawing with some slip for another.

I’ve always favoured stoneware ceramics as that’s what I did on both the evening classes of my training! I’m thinking that I’ll give earthenware a bit more consideration now.
