new test pots

09Jul11

test posts made with red brown clay from yesterday’s firing were a nice surprise after the satin white pots i’ve been focusing on.

I had a white porcelain bowl explode on the middle shelf of the kiln spraying broken shards all over the other pots.  I need to re-evaluate my process, and have a little more patience to be sure the pots are completely dry before turning the kiln on.

Next weekend I have an open studio preview with the portland tour de coop stop happening in our back yard, so lets hope I can do one successful firing this week.
