When it comes to a big piece of pottery I get stuck sometimes planning what types of glazes I want to use. Usually, I wing it and pray that the piece comes out okay. My techniques are changing though. (Thankfully!)
I'm so happy I took my time with this feather and thought carefully about the glaze choice. I used Coyote White and I'm in love!
I sold this feather the moment I was putting it on display for our Holiday Sale at BAYarts. My day was made!
This is what I do with the back of the larger feathers I carve because I want people to be able to hang them more than one way:
TIP: If you're a unsure about gluing hooks onto your wall art or pottery, E6000 glue is the best!
Make sure you wait 24 hours for the glue to cure though! When I sell my feathers to people I usually ask them which way they want the hooks and glue them that day and have them either take it with them with masking tape over the glue or have them pick up the feather(s) within the next few days.
You can also carve holes or divots into your pottery to use for hanging. I am starting to refrain from doing this because I roll my clay out so thin.
