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 Tad disappointed.

Looks like a good firing Paul. I hope I can get my gas firing to look as good. I am testing some glazes with more a range this week.
Well done.

Nice!!! Don't be disapointed blogger Paul they are some nice pots you have there. I get the bits too but have found if I whisk up the glaze like crazy then leave it for a cup of tea and then go back and take a jug or two from the top I get slightly less bits! I expect you do something similar anyway but this works for me.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
