Blowing bubbles on pottery is not new concept but it sure is fun! One thing I really like about the pottery making craft is that it is a series of step by step processes. I am a master of efficiency and enjoy the normalcy of process. I line up all the bowls, cups, and trays on my glaze table lined with newspaper. Next to that is several containers of a water, dish soap and colored underglaze concoction. I will need paintbrushes, plastic straws, spatulas and sponges. Underglaze is kind of like paint. Using the straw, I blow bubbles in the mixture and let it fall over the top of the container and land onto the pots. I work in an assembly line fashion and use one or two colors at a time. Let things dry. And then layer more bubble colors on top. It is extremely therapeutic!
