Emptying the kiln

I love days when a glaze firing is finished and I get to empty the kiln . . .

Working on my different mug shapes and styles of handles

Painting with underglaze and carving, while the bowl was in the greenware stage, then dipped/poured in transparent glaze before the final glaze firing

Experimenting with slip trailing, and how the glaze breaks on the slip when it’s brushed on

I like how this glaze (Storm) breaks on the slip trailing, but I’m not as crazy about the color I got on the inside of the mug when I mixed Storm with Snow (Amaco Celadon glazes)

Two of my most successful tries with dark chocolate clay – it looks best leaving the bare clay unglazed, and using Georgie’s Perfect White on the interior (or dripping down the sides). I tried white underglaze, but got spotty results – back to the drawing board . . .
