Just a small portion of my dad & his wife’s bee hives.

Just a small portion of my dad & his wife’s bee hives.

These are slab-built boxes I made last year as gifts for my family. I’m creating my own template with roofing paper in order to streamline the process of making more. Then, one day in the near future, my dad will be able to sell them along with his prize-winning honey. Yay bees!

Getting technical:
Both were made with Standard 182 stoneware. The patterns on the first box are made from a combination of Sanbao Studio underglaze decals and splotches of Amaco underglaze. On the second box, it’s underglaze with Spearmint glaze inside. Both have Sahara Clear on top and were fired to cone 6.
