With all the down firing I've been doing I have learned to control some of the peeling with the majolica and overglaze. While I have been sticking to one color, I think I will broaden my horizons a bit and use multiple colors to give a hint of this sort of aesthetic. And also to show the correct orientation for the lids on the boxes I've been making. Try as I might, I am not yet able to build square or rectangular lids that can fit in either direction. Either way it fits into my concept.
