  7. Loving that dark clay body. Seems like mostly they turned out fin, except for a little cracking, but yeah, you'd think poking a hole or two would do the trick, and a long slow firing. Did the glass fuse? Cool.

  8. Hi Amy, thanks, not sure what the glass will do over time though.

    Hi Becky, these are a white clay body with a dark glaze, the glass is melted along with the glaze during the firing and adheres to the glaze.
