Nice new pots.

Here are some of my pots that came out the last firing. This first pic is our bird feeders which stand on the top of a post, the birds love them.
The second picture looks a bit squint but hey.....these are my wine jugs, which got real good ash.

This is my handled bowl with the tenmoku (think thats spelt right) with the rutile slip painted on top of the glaze.
Here is a small collection of the tulip vases done in the granite glaze with again the rutile slip painted on top of the glaze, which gives the golden colours.
Here is another of my mousey pots, thought I would try it in the granite glaze this time but this pic doesnt show the colours at its best.

The latest firing.

Hi there, sorry it has been so long since my last post as I've been having some problems with uploading pictures that had been taken with another camera, so I'm back to my camera phone pics.
This is our latest firing, its a bit of a mixed kiln, wee bit of everything in this firing. Here in the pic below, just a few bricks down & we could see straight away that we got good ash & good reduction :)
This is our front stack: I like to compare the difference between the before first pic & the after pic below, all zingy & toasty :)
& this is our back stack.......
I know the past 2 posts have been firings with nothing in between as if there has been nothing going on here at the pottery but that's so far from the truth. I will def be back with the goings on of whats been happening :)
