Yesterday morning was my day to work at the pottery studio. Upon opening the door to the studio I realized that the gas kiln had been run and unloaded. I retrieved three pieces of pottery out of this firing. The tomato red flower bowl and the two sugar/honey jars. I was pleased with the firing...lots and lots of reds which seem to be the hardest to achieve.
Also I had this bird tile (and another)that came out of the electric firing. Previously I hand carved this tile and then casted it in plaster so I had a permanent mold. I tried to make these for Christmas but in my haste, they warped and I discarded them. I decided to try again and I really like how this one turned out with the awesome patina to the soft green glaze. I think I may try the owl welcome plaque in this glaze...it seems to highlight the images nicely.
I am off to work all day and hopefully will not too tired to create tonight.
Happy Tuesday all!
