Finally I decided to take a risk and fire the glaze load. As it turned out the weather cooperated. We shall see how long it took to do the firing and if my electricity supply is adequate. While the kiln was firing I decided to make a couple of large wall tiles. Enamored with how the maple leaf bowls turned out, I thought to make tiles with the same motif. These are about 12 x 9 inches.
Here's a black one. When ready to glaze these I'll use a transparent with color over both.
This week I thought about displaying small plates and leaves in baskets for my farmer's market booth. Yesterday I decided to go to the flea market not holding much hope of finding any.
Sometimes I can't believe my luck; I found two really sturdy baskets. What do you think I should put inside the basket to display the pottery. Maybe some burlap material or excelsior? The kiln won't be cool enough to open till late tonight. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to take photos to show you, but I'll try. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
