Yay for New Pots!

 Last night we un-bricked the door to the kiln and took out a few pots. We knew right away it was a good firing. ALL of our orders were PERFECT! This morning I was out there unloading the kiln in my jammies. I was anxious to see how my nuka mugs with underglaze came out. I was pretty happy with the results.



These mugs were underglaze applied to leather hard pots and bisqued (above and below)


Below is underglaze applied to bisque fired mugs. All are glazed with  nuka. 


I did some flowers in blue and green but they pretty much burned out or melted away into the nuka. I think if I want flowers to be blue or green I will have to apply it to greenware. 


 I played around with the new carbon trap shino that Jeff mixed for his workshop a few weeks ago. The stripes are where I applied liquid wax.


 and every firing has to have pigs...
