Ta-dum!

Here's the big piece. It's about 15 inches tall, and I love it. That bowl is pretty nice, too. Also in the firing was a bowl and mug set (special order), and my little test piece, which I may post a photo. Tried a new glaze in it, which I think I'll like in the future; I used it too thick, so it pooled and bubbled in the bottom of the bowl, which is not a desirable result. But, used thinner, with more control, I think it will be lovely. However, with that test piece I also discovered that my green slip doesn't fire green (unglazed) but just a lighter (cobalt) blue. Which is odd, as it's copper based. Which is green. Not blue. Curious.

That's all for now. Studio night tomorrow (Tuesday). Will keep you updated.

Peace!
