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.
