August 22 firing

this firing had some pieces that involved revisiting an old glaze combination that I haven't used in years; a luster black/white combo. most of my glazes are fine being overlapped with each other, but this particular black isn't the same base glaze,and when overlapped with my white, it forms a "lava"like effect as you will see in the picture of it. I also included a couple of pics of the peephole glowing at the end of the firing, and the final readout of the temperature of the kiln when the firing was finished. One pic is the first shelf of pots as I look down into the kiln.

Jean's casserole

This is one of my best celadon green casseroles yet. A friend of mine named Jean ordered a celadon green one after seeing a lime green and blue one I had made earlier. This is the resulting piece; A nice confluence of creative design,function,and calming green glaze as well.

new pots

I'm finally posting again after too long in between posts. these pics are of some bowls I'm working on at this time. not so many with the "wave" going around the rim like my sun bowls,but more of a flower shape. also some of the pieces are being textured with squares and free-hand lines around the rim as well.
I've also included some images from my last show in minneapolis about a week ago. enjoy.
