We knocked out the glaze on the now loaded kiln pretty quick this go around.
We had most of it done in one day and we were able to finish it up yesterday am and then load it up in the sunshine of the day.
It does feel strange to have a kiln that you could glaze and load in a day if you really wanted to.
I am still trying to get use to the size of this kiln after glazing for 80 cubic feet for so many years.
20 just feels like a start.
This kiln just begs for some play time and we are thinking what the heck let's play.
We like using the iron red for wax resist it works well with a rich black glaze on top.
Then Mark remembered this bottle he made around 1983.....
I am not sure why we kept this one except it is pretty sweet.
We did more with this glaze combination and then ran into problems with the two, or maybe once we built the big kiln we could not get the reduction we needed to have this come out well.
We discarded it and went on to other glazes.
Now we are back there again and it is funny to see this pop back up.
Remember me it seem to say- you have been down this path before.
Go ahead and taste me once more- oh, so sweet.
Time to find some matches.
Happy Friday the 13th.!
