Kiln Results 6/10

June 16, 2022

I made a lamp! In these kiln results is the lamp....that I made. I started this lamp back in January. I wanted to make sure it was super dry before I put it in the bisque. Then I was waiting to have enough tall things to bisque all on one shelf. Then I took forever to pick a color, but now I have a lamp! I used a kit from Amazon meant for wine bottles, and by I used I mean - Craig did the wiring. It wasn't that hard for him though, took about 20 minutes. I did make the hole slightly too big, if I make another lamp I'll make the hole smaller. I re-arranged my desk so that it would fit with all my computers and monitors. I am just so excited about how it turned out.

There are a lot of lemon plates in this kiln. I never would have thought that I would enjoy drawing and coloring them as much as I do. They also just come out so cool looking. My fairy house is finally glazed as well. I enjoyed painting that a lot more than I thought I would. I'm also really pleased with the Mayco underglazes. I'm definitely glad I got exposed to them, they're just so much smoother than the Speedball ones.

I love that it's like the footprints are being wiped away!! I also really like sandstone as sand better than winterwood.
