Delighted it survived the first firing, I knew I needed to explore ideas about colour and finish and want to perhaps look at spraying underglaze. Toni Losey (came across her work at International Ceramics Festival) said that she sprays her pieces and creates an interesting depth of texture through layering underglazes over a number of firings, the coloured surfaces of her work almost look like another sculptural layer. See images below

I am still planning to explore using underglazes in this way but much experimentation and testing is needed which is what I will explore as my practice progresses.
Above are the images of the piece after bisque, I decided to pit the piece back in for a stoneware fiirng as I knew the clay body would darken and then make a decision on the finish.
