This Salad bowl & other various vessels will end up at the @open_room_
They still require a couple of firings & glazing.
Kiln science is an amazing thing. This clay at bone dry stage (stage these vessels are at after being thrown & air dried) is still quite dark. After the initial Bisque fire (1000C) the clay appears a sort of gentle smoked trout pink tone. But after the final Glaze firing (1280c) this clay will be a light beige with gorgeous speckled tones.
It never stops being exciting seeing the transition from beginning to end.
