Expect Some Losses
All of these made it through the bisque. Lots of precarious handles, birds, tops, and balancing circles. The pencil tower, the tallest one which is about 20 inches tall, will be fired with the top separate since it's too tall to fit in the kiln. Now how to get the glaze into the center of these towers but not get it on the upper portion which I may want to glaze in a different color. Maybe glaze the outside first and then put wax on it, what do you think?
Two rustic woven baskets and two large poppy bowls also made it plus numerous miscellaneous pieces. I've got half the load glazed and will finish up the rest of the glazing today. I have to decide how to glaze the white pieces. Sometimes that's the hard part for me; especially when the forms are ones I haven't made before. Thursday night or Friday day look good to try and squeeze in a glaze load between all the thunderstorms inundating the gulf coast this past week. This post is part of Mud Colony what's happening in the studio. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
