For the glaze load that's firing, I was able to squeeze in a few hearts. I planned on getting these fired long before now but the worn out kiln relays set me back in time. The hearts arranged like this remind me of a plate pattern I've seen before or maybe it was fabric. I glazed these in red, plum and even some clear.
It's been in the low thirties during the night but the low seventies during the day. I took advantage of the sun yesterday and sanded green ware while a glaze load was firing. I have a dust mask I use while sanding because dry clay dust (silica) is harmful to the lungs. For sanding I'm using a green kitchen scourer several potters have suggested, one being Michele of Meesh's Pottery. As soon as I unload the kiln today, I'll load up another bisque load. I have quite a few sgraffito and slip decorated plates and bowls to fire next. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
