DMW Pottery CatsI recently worked on a vase with friend of mine Don Williams of DMW Pottery Studio. Don and his wife Cristina make amazing hand-made pottery, Don throws the pottery on the wheel then Cristina decorates it.

A customer of Don’s wanted a custom piece, being a huge Nightmare Before Christmas fan he wanted a Jack Skellington vase. Don had seen some of my underglaze paintings before on pottery and asked if I wanted to work on the project with him, and I happily agreed!

Don supplied a blank bisqued vase, then I drew the design on in pencil, then I used Aamco underglaze paints. Don then fired the vase again to set the underglazes, then coated it in a clear glaze to protect and add the lovely gloss sheen.

I hope I get to work with Don & Cristina on more projects in the future..
