Success!

bowls

The kiln fired off perfectly, and today I unloaded it and excitedly began glazing.  The bowls you see in the background are half-fired or bisqued.  They have such a orange hue because I dipped them in an iron slip before firing them.  I think the slip will do nice things to the glaze I am going to put over it.   The bowls in the foreground are glistening because they are still wet after dipping them in the thick glaze.  This glaze is the beautiful blue one from the last round of tests, and is made from the ash from the barn’s cedar shingles.  I can’t wait to see how they come out and will show you the results in a few days.
