Thanksgiving Kiln #2 11/27 Christmas Balls!

December 03, 2022

Christmas Balls! Ok maybe I need to stop calling them that. It's probably not good marketing, but it makes me laugh so I keep saying it. Squiggle Ornaments? Ornament Squiggles? Does it need Christmas in there or is it implied? Whatever they're called they came out amazing. Michael Harbidge did a live on these for Clayshare a few weeks ago. I followed the technique for building, but went a different way than him on glazing ideas.

I definitely like the Christmas plates and ornaments in laguna 60 better than the ones in the KY Brown Bear. The brown bear are too dark for me, but I also think they're really striking at the same time. Before they came out of the kiln I was sure I would love the brown bear ones better. What do you all think?
