A total unexpected surprise, this shotty was supposed to be glazed in my Stormy Willunga Hills colour pallette, but I would have run out of glaze after making the other 2 things I needed to in those colours.. so I just threw on what was already on the brush at the time – the cherry pink. Part way through the 3 day glazing marathon, I lost interest in what I was doing for the rest and experimented. I am so glad I did, because this look will now be part of my range. I am so in love with it. It’s got a total 80s vibe and I love it.

Messier 8 is a pink coloured nebula, also called The Lagoon Nebula, located in our night sky within the constellation Sagittarius.
Given that my nickname as a kid as Janah Banana Mess Maker; my sun, moon and ascendant signs are Sagittarius, and that my main man graciously puts up with the mess I make in making what I think are quite beautiful clay pieces, I thought it was the perfect thing to name this nebula glaze combo after.

This girl was first wheel thrown on a electric potters wheel, allowed to dry for a few hours, had the thumb dimple depressed, allowed to dry/settle a little more overnight, then trimmed on the potters wheel, and then set aside to dry for a week or two. When then next kiln full of work was ready, it was fired for 12 hours and cooled over a further 12hours. It was washed in clean water with a lint free sponge and then thoughtfully hand painted with a minimum of 4 coats of glaze in 5 different colours, then fired for an additional 15 hours and cooled for another 12 hours before being prepared for sale and photographed for the artists catalogue.

Approx 125ml fluid volume.
