Kiln Results 7/29

August 02, 2021

I knew that before I could do another bisque firing I needed to clear my ready for the kiln shelves or I'd run out of room. There were several big pieces that I just hadn't been able to fit in, including a very large platter. The first picture is of the leaf bowl that gave me so much trouble. Before bisque a leaf fell off. I tried to reattach it, but in the glaze firing it fell off again. I sanded down the leaf that fell, refired it, and then glued it on - you can't even see it!

I was also doing a lot of experiments with green's this kiln because I have a ton of lily pad stuff coming through next. Searching for the best green's. My favorites were the Oribe, Wasabi, and Sour Apple. What are yours?
