Burnishing

I spent some time burnishing a few pots hoping they can be fired Friday for the barrel firing this weekend.  I may not make it in time, as I think they will still be a bit wet.  I burnished a couple red clay pieces, as well as two white clay pieces.

Other piecesI also tried burnishing one of the white pieces with graphite.  It turned out very cool – it almost looks like it is made out of metal.  I may not put it in the barrel firing – it looks pretty amazing as is.
