Pinched Edge Vase by Linda Starr
Slow cooling is well worth the trouble. With the cool down it took 18 hours to fire, then all day today to completely cool down so I could open the kiln just a bit ago. I used the second program from my last post but modified it slightly. Here's a few of the results.

I'll be scarce the next few days since I'm almost out of Internet minutes till after the 3rd. Also residuals effects of hurricanes may be headed our way so I have to quickly do two more bisque and glaze loads.

Only a couple of slight mishaps. A crackle glaze shivered off the top of a cone 10 vase because that glaze didn't fit the clay body but other cone 10 vases did just fine.

The nichrome handles drooped again. I thought I had allowed room but the bead is glazed to the top of a tall lidded box. I will get a torch tomorrow and try and melt the glaze at that point to separate them.

My photos don't do these justice but I wanted to get them up for you to see. The 'Various Circles Vase' background glaze looks like reduction. The 'Fossil Shell Pinch Bowl' has a wonderful matt lavender glaze inside. The last vase shown above has some nice crackle.
Thanks to all who gave advice and support. More later. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
