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.
I 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.
