2009-09-16 Wednesday - Kiln Opening

We unloaded the big gas kiln tonight. I was pleased with most of my pieces and can't wait to tweak my glazes by what I learned tonight. A couple of my bottles had marbles on them and the glass ran more than I had planned. I will be grinding a shelf in the near future --something I've never had to do before now. Another learning experience.





Remember the "crackled pot" w/black slip?

Fantastic pots!! Love the bottles. Whenever I see the results from your kiln, I always miss ^10 reduction firing...

Thanks!

I know the feeling. We had no ^10 kiln for several years after a move.
