New Glaze Firing - Opened today
Small Lidded Jar
Large Lidded Jar
Small white lipped bowl
Black bowl white slip decoration
Small black jug
This is a selection of pots that have come out of the kiln today. It's one of those firings that has come out OK but not fantastic.
I sieved the strong yellow glaze with a 120 sieve since the last firing, in the hope I could reduce the amount of minute black speckles in the glaze, but they are still there and if anything the glaze has lost some colour. So although they are alright I feel just a Taddisappointed.
