february 2018

The second firing of 2018 was highly successful; many glaze tests were included, most of which determined some new glazes not to incorporate into my repertoire. Knowing what NOT to do is obviously just as important as knowing what to do. That said, there were some successes that I hope to put to good use in the coming months.

The 2nd image is of a stack of oversize pasta/salad/soup bowls in TuSk, a glaze pattern I came up with last Spring. There were some new Cordoba glazed pieces as well as the shino, matte black, aqua, and copper reds I have been using for a while now.

The little guy on the far right is Oliver Muse, AKA Ollie, Jane's most recent Pekingese rescue, and a most welcome addition to our home. He is definitely Jane's dog, but has squirmed his way into my heart as well.
