Nicely packed, then fired on Saturday....at one point it seemed to really slow, and the pyro only said 1180 (it has been saying 1230) when the cone 9 went down....
Ermmmm........This WAS supposed to be a kiln mostly full of green pots.....
Could be a bit redder IF I was going for red...
Little pig fridge magnets!
That was the Big Green Bowl that was!
My solid black glaze!
and the buttery green one! The effect has gone down well though, plenty of good comments and messages on facebook!
Now I have to work out how I did it! I think I do....but I was checking constantly to make sure that the kiln WAS drawing well!!
The dark blue has come out marvellously well! This is a Spindle cup, used with a Drop Spindle when hand spinning. The bottom end of the spindle rests in it as it spins (and gets heavier!) so the inside has to be really smooth.
There may be some collaboration with a woodturner soon....watch this space.
Now to see if I can get enough spindlecups made to be taken to Wonderwool....might be difficult, if not I'll be ready for next year and can sell elsewhere too.
