Slowly getting back into the studio this week after the long holiday weekend. I burnished a few pieces I had made for a barrel firing I want to do soon – I think I’ve got the burnishing process down to a pretty quick process, where it only takes me about 10-20 minutes per piece, depending on the size.
I fired the burnished pieces yesterday to cone 015, and everything came out nice and shiny. I need to make a run into Rochester for some supplies, and then I will be completely ready for a barrel firing very soon.
My wife is firing the kiln right now, filled with pieces from some students that took a few classes here. It is always interesting to see how their pieces turn out. Always find little ideas in every firing.
