heather, over at the pottery studio, had a nice surprise waiting for me tonight.

all of my recent work had been bisque fired this weekend and was ready for me to glaze. a diligent 1.5 hours later and here is a photo looking down into the kiln of the aftermath. glaze is always a tricky proposition because glazes in their liquid form look nothing like what they eventually become.  i've tried out some new tricks tonight based on what i've learned previously and added a new color - orange, into the mix of colors i am using. 8 hours to fire, 8 hours to cool, i'll pick everything up thursday and see what chance may have helped along

getting better with my brush swooshes. a good swoosh is everything in art pottery.
