first peek

Took down half the door tonight. The shino is looking good in the front.



My tests are sort of weird, but the bottom half of the mugs was the real test and it did what I was looking for. I can now glaze the rest of the porcelain dishes. As soon as I saw these I thought, "why didn't I glaze the top half of these mugs in tenmoku?". Live and learn. That's why they are called TESTS.


We will finish unloading tomorrow.

  1. The test mugs look awesome. Hope the rest of the kiln is equally wonderful.

  4. I think this is a design that will change radically depending on the glaze used. I like the soft green; what is the pink? I'm looking forward to the next group.

  5. smartcat- the pink is the overlap of the Temple White and the gloss green. I was surprised the green turned pink. I was expecting a washed out green. The pink is what I really don't like about these.
