The last ^10 kiln of the year was also unloaded on Sunday and we got lots of nice Christmas surprises. Thanks Julie for firing the kiln! Below are pictures of some of them along with a Shiner Holiday Cheer bottle for scale.
The pot with the wax resist over shino.
The wax completely burned out and left no trace.
It happens, but I like the shino variations.
Latest "crackle" pot.
If you need a definition of the word "luck", this would be it.
The marble on the knob ran down the whole pot and stopped less
than a quarter of an inch from the bottom in a big, juicy drip.
I'm likin' it.
Some of the design on this plate burned out, but I still like it.
I like this little teapot for it's form,
but unfortunately it's got a compression crack in the bottom.
It'll still look nice on my shelf --just don't pick it up.
This is an odd piece but I have enjoyed it's process.
When I made it I was looking for a semi-flat surface to decorate.
Side view to show how "squashed" it is.
... and yes, the lid comes off.
