I took some time in the early afternoon to spend some quiet time in the studio as my glaze kiln cooled enough to open then unload. I did remember to take photos!
Above = before glaze firing.
Below = after (cone 5 which is @ 2230 degrees F)
I wanted to make some smaller, more tiny sized Terrarium sculpture pieces.
Perfect since I needed some meditation time (this is one of my new nature texture pendants from this firing - a test firing for them).
And as I am working, if distracted, accidents can happen (this wire had to be trimmed - way too long!).
Then finally the kiln was cool enough to unload...
There are many spiral texture textured discs in this load.
And some more tests of that new ocean/sea object spiral impressed plate.
I wanted more blue, so back to more tests...
Then, the bottom shelf. Above = before glaze firing. Below = after Cone 5 firing.
There were a few fatalities (with firing new shapes, with different weights, in new ways, there are always lessons to be learned!)
I want to get some of these petite pieces fired ASAP! Loving these glazes...
There are so many combinations and directions I can take with these.
The ideas for colors and use are overflowing... Now if only I had the time!
This is going to be so much fun moving forward with these!!!
Then it was time to get the kids from school. And now a weekend full of family time (maybe eeking in some glaze time and a small glaze firing) and parties and food making!
Off to start my day while the house sleeps in for a bit...
