New work-lustre bowls

Some ‘Seeds and leaves’ range lustre bowls painted this week. Lustres are what I describe as ‘very lively’, they are difficult to photograph and you can’t capture the play of light in a still photo. They have some iridescence, which I have managed to capture in one view, and they are very reflective and catch the light. It’s hard to imagine the colours were all brown and treacle like when I painted the bowls, (and they smell like dreadful). The alchemy happens during the firing process,  they are always a wonder to me, but not always in a good way.
