Loving Lustre

I did a little experiment yesterday.
I am hoping to release a new line of pieces.
Usually I don't glaze the Porcelain, but these pieces will be glazed with a gloss glaze and highlighted with Gold or Platinum Lustre.
It means that alot more processes are involved, and it's more time consuming, but I think it will be worth it.
Here are some sample pieces that I made with a Gold Lustre, just to see how it would turn out.
I am also thinking of introducing some black, by dyeing the Porcelain with an oxide before firing.
Now I just have to decide exactly what to make.
