You know how I was talking about glaze that jumps off the pots?
Why did I tempt fate and even bring that up?
Mark peeked way back in the middle stack as we were unloading the front and said, there is something funny back there.
Not funny ha-ha-ha, but funny like you don't want to really know about that funny.
It is the funny like hitting your funny bone not so funny- funny....
So here you go:
|Oh, look! The glaze that was on the pot when it went in the kiln jumped off and hit the shelf , and then melted...|
|and landed on this wee cup on the shelf below and melted down the side.|
|BUT- can you believe that this is now ground off? Oh, thank you kiln wash.|
Then again maybe it was me when I top coated this pot and most likely left it too long in the top glaze.
Too thick, the shape of the pots, the flame of the fire, the perfect storm.
Otherwise- it was a good firing with Collection pots for the Spring Furniture Market.
The Navy blue glaze is pretty amazing- so blue it seems black.
