We have full sun today. Yeah!!!
Of all the pieces that were in the kiln this week fired to cone5 this is my favorite. It is a short and stout little thistle with lots of personality. I already have it started in a necklace for my friend MaryAnne in Arizona. Today I will make some more of these. I didn't have any good feelings about this piece until I opened up the kiln. Actually I thought it would be a dud. And then it just started chattering and I couldn't help but love it.
These are some more of the pieces that were in that kiln load this week. This is how they look after they were tumbled for about an hour.
Here are some that were also in that load but have not yet been tumbled. Overall, I think the colors are a bit drab and I may brighten them up and refire them.
This is from a different kiln firing. It is earthenware and is gloss glazed. I added it to my website. Quite a difference from the others. I love these subtle browns.
Would love to hear what you think about any of these. Good or bad.
