Anyone interested in ceramic tank decor/breeding caves?

I'm in the ceramics studio at least twice a week making utilitarian bowls, plates, cups, etc. but I'm going to experiment making some things for my shrimp! Will let you guys know how it goes and prob put up some pictures when I get some things fired in the cone 10 kiln (debating on if I should glaze it, or leave it natural) and I thought I would see if anyone interested in having me make something in particular?

I have a few 'cichlid caves' - they're nice to have, but almost white! Don't really go with a dark substrate. There just might be a good market for the smaller caves if they look good . I'm interested in seeing how they turn out if you try it!

Interesting, thanks for the info! I may try some painted in black slip then, and texture them up a bit. I want to try and stay away from glaze since it makes them too smooth and shiny. And I will probably cover mine in moss so I want to have some texture to stick to.
