Crusty pots

I just got in from throwing and I'm headed off for some sleep. Pretty good night of throwing. I'm working on bottles and mugs since I did sell alot of those last weekend at Blowing Rock.

Here are the photo's of some of the crusty pots from my kiln. Its kind of funny for me to look at these because I use to make all mat-glazed work years ago. To see it now, even though this glaze is just really under fired makes me wonder why I was attracted to matt glazes so long ago. I guess taste change...........
I have new elements ordered and we'll see that James, my electrician says on Thursday. I can't wait to just have my kiln up and going again!

Well, I like glossy glazes too, but Jen, your week here, even matte, still looks superb!

i like the matte glazes but i agree with gary, both matte and glossy suit your work fine

I ditto the above, it's nice your work is suited to both matt and glossy glazes.

Well guys I do love my new camera but believe me, the "crust" is there and I can't wait for the re-fire! I do have to say that looking at these in this state sort of helps tweak things a bit when it comes to form and decoration. You always learn so much from blunders that happen!

I hope the kiln-fixin' goes well. It would be interesting to see how these come out when you refire. Hope you post pics!

I like the look of those pieces - hope they come through the re-firing OK! Good luck.
