Katherine Glazing a Mug

Katherine Glazing a Mug

It’s been a long week of glazing and sanding and firing and glazing and firing and… well, you get the picture.  The last load of greenware went into the kiln this afternoon, so sometime on Wednesday I’ll be waxing, dipping, and brushing the last of my pieces.

In case you’re wondering how those mugs I was working on in the last entry turned out, I’ve got a picture. Check them out… The big bowl was being bisque fired today, so you’ll have to live in suspense and come to the show on Friday until to see it.

Most everything turned out from the last glaze firing, even some of my more experimental glazing techniques.  There were one or two casualities, though; lesson learned, don’t put pieces glazed in textured kiwi or any green glaze on the bottom shelf of the kiln.  It’s just too darn hot down there.

You can see for yourself how other pieces turned out. I have added a few new pictures to the pottery samples page to give folks a preview of some of the pieces that will be in the upcoming show.  I took my own photographs this time, and they definitely did not turn out as well as the last batch, which Stacy took.
