Well, I finally got a chance to run the kiln and fired the remaining pieces I had left. I have the test pieces in this fire along with some purple and gold bowls.
I am really happy with how this firing turned out. By far the stand out pieces are the red glazed pieces. I’ve been searching for a nice red glaze for some time, but seems like they either turn out pink or I don’t get predictable results. Sometimes they turn out red, rust, or tan. So I’m happy to get a nice red. The straw colored pieces turned out nice as well, and could be a nice light colored glaze to balance out all of the dark glazes I have been using. The other glazes turned out nice but didn’t blow me away. I’ll be trying them some more soon.
The purple and gold bowls turned out very nice – it was my first attempt at making a set of pieces with the same shape or size. They turned out pretty nice, and I hope the person that requested them is happy!
