Reveal: Yarn Bowls are Done






The yarn bowls are done. The owner of Hobby Hut Ceramics took these photos and I am so glad she did. Many of the bowls were already picked up by the time I got to the shop so I was glad to see everyone's completed projects. 



Here are my bowls.  

Yarn Bowl #1 
Before...



And after...



For yarn bowl #1, I used a glaze called Hot Tamale for the first two layers. The third and final layer had little flecks of white in it.
 

Yarn Bowl #2
Before...
 

And after...
 
 
For yarn bowl #2, I used a glaze called Candy Apple Red on the bottom and on the inside of the bowl. The outside of the bowl is a glaze called Peppermint Twist and it had big chunks of "crystals" which burst when the bowl was fired, giving the bowl a great colorful, mottled, almost drippy look.
 
 
I always assumed the holes in the yarn bowl were for yarn, although I prefer to use the "J-shaped" portion for my yarn. The ceramics shop owner, Teri, told me the holes drilled in the bowl is for knitting needles.  Duh!
