I put a handle on the large jug that appeared without a handle in my last post, and gave it a coat of white slip as well.
Our studio was open to the public this weekend, but I managed to make another 17 inch high jug this afternoon. I must say that the larger size is really fun.
I have included some photos of the glaze firing that I unpacked from the electric kiln last Friday. I had some of the bird jugs in that firing,
there was a fish pot (for tea or coffee),
a small jug,
some rather medieval looking stoneware mugs (the raised pattern is trailed shino glaze),
and a 13 and a 15 inch bowl. The 15 inch was the absolute maximum size I could fit in my kiln,
there was only about 2 or 3 mm clearance between the props and the bowl which gave me some anxiety.
Here are a couple of close ups of the bowls. The glaze reminds me of the sea or of the sky.
This morning God was firing in reduction and came up with some lovely skies.
