So, in my last post I was showing off pots as they were going into the kiln and wondering if I had wrecked things or not. Well, the kiln load turned out fairly well -a nice batch of berry bowls, a collection of perfect fruity salt shakers, nice mugs and square hors d'ouevres plates BUT I did manage to wreck something.....
....the sculptural jars I had been working so hard on! -difficult shapes, lots of fiddly details, a persnickety glaze job.... and I mis-matched the lids!!!
They can't be switched because then the lids don't fit!! So it's back to the drawing board with the sculptural jars!! Boohoo :(
This little vase turned out well though. I particularily like how the glaze emphasized the carving rather than obscuring it as I was worried it might -since I had never tested it on a textured piece before! This little vase has been named Sweetheart and is already listed in my Etsy shop.
