Baked some buns today. I wanted to illustrate this recipe for myself as I can't read a recipe while baking. I have to be able to just "look" at a recipe and bake. If I have to read I will probably make some tea and even start have the fireplace on. By the time I finish reading a recipe I might probably doze off like a grandma with my cats nestling near my ankles.
I have some steamed yams filling for the buns.
One thing lead to another, I decided to stuff some white chocolate blocks in the bun dough.
Actually the truth was, I just made some tableware. So I thought I would bake something to photograph my plates with. This is Mayi.
Mayi was formed entirely by hand. Because of this, the surface is irregular. I think irregularities like this should be embraced as it is handmade.
I love jade tone glaze like celadon. But I could not find a good celadon colour I like. This time I used lettuce colour glaze on Mayi which turns out to be very jadite.
This is Natanee. It is a bit different from Lacey and Meicy as I used a thicker brush on glaze. The underglaze is a bit runny. I should have used a thicker underglaze. Lacey and Meicy were glazed with a powder form transparent glaze and their clay body are still visible.
I made a baby Lucy to give DH Zoetemeer as a free gift. She bought Lacey and Meicy.
One thing lead to another. And another... I can't help myself but drew something on the buns when trying to label the buns.
I am quiet delighted with it myself.
