Maple Leaves & More from the Kiln

Did you see the blue moon? I went out this morning to catch a glimpse. Here are some quick photos I took of the kiln I unloaded last night. Then I had to pack up for the farmer's market. I had three maple leaf bowls in this firing. I'm not sure I want to sell this first bowl; I'm really smitten with it. I glazed it with a celadon glaze, even over the stain. I wasn't sure if the stain would show but it does.

For the other two maple leaf bowls I used a clear satin glaze. This one has a black glaze on the underside.

 This maple leaf bowl has a brown glaze on the underside.

This multi colored bowl has a rutile glaze on the underside. These underglazes fire much darker than I wish they did. I have plate drying that I hope dries lighter, we shall see.

 This vase has the same rutile glaze.

 For this pot I used the same brown glaze as the underside of the bowl.

 This vase has the same celadon glaze as the first maple bowl.

 Here are two sushi plates, again with the rutile glaze.

Here's a couple of heart dishes with the same rutile glaze. Off to the market now, hope it's a good one. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
