And the results are in!
I am now getting around to taking some photos from the firing this week.
I am happy with these flower & leaf carved bowls. Only two got into this firing, but there are more on the way. We had some really nice reduction this go around. The shinos are lookin' lovely.
This baker was a re-fire. It is one of two. When it came out of the first firing, the turquoise was almost black. The shino on the interior had some crawling near the seam. A little additional glaze corrected that problem. As for the turquoise, it's not exactly the color I like but it looks much better. I re-fired another one and it has also been saved from the seconds shelf. Sometimes there is hope for re-fires!
The gloss greens were looking really good on everything.
About half of the wall pockets were fired and they are already in the Etsy shop. Clicking on the photo will take you to the listings.
