Carved another jug today! I like this one pretty well, it was a little bit taller than I like, but I think the design fits the shape. It was a pain in the butt carving the area under the handle. B-mix is so smooth, but it is annoyingly softe even when its leather hard. It's far too easy to smear stuff or dent it.
Also I finally took some pictures of the test cups I tried out Ryans glazes on. Most of them are not great, but I will figure something out. The one on the left is just bare clay, I like it when it is more brown, but when it gets a lot of salt it turns blue, which I am not so sure about. The on on the right has Ryans signature glaze, which I actually like, especially when it turns black. It makes a nice contrast for the raised carvings, but I'm not sure it would work on the carvings I'm doing now.
