Spraying Glaze

We sure wish we had a spray booth, but we don't... so spraying glaze happens outside. We used to hang our spray gun from a tree when we lived at the log cabin. Now it sits in a cinder block in between sprays. You gotta do what you gotta do to get by!

 Jeff has had this adjustable banding wheel for years. It's super handy for spraying glaze. The oval dish is glazed with tenmoku on the interior, so I only had to spray the exterior. This is an ash glaze that when sprayed gives the pots a toasty color without obliterating the carving that wood firing often does.

When the oval dishes were finished, I moved on to bowls. I spray the underside first, then flip and spray the interior.

Tomorrow is firing day. Results should be in on Saturday.
