Unpacked pots, the last from Maze Hill Pottery, laid out to be looked at and their bases cleaned up. It’s incredible the difference light makes on these glassy vessels, the dark greens and kaki rims seem to standout far more on a darker background. It was a good firing, the temperature was very even and I only had to smash two seconds. A handful of the pots have some blackening around the tops, particularly the whites and middle greens but in most cases I don’t mind it, it’s just another quality that the kiln gives, so I may as well get used to it.
Lots of bowls, tons of one off vessels and a number of other bits and pieces were packed inside, the two larger green bowls back left have been refired three fired and has made the colours exceedingly deep and dark. The first time round they fired too cool, meaning the glaze was rather matte. The second time through I accidentally placed them touching the kilns fibre wall, meaning each had a small section of damaged glaze, I lightly patched those areas and refired them yet again and finally they came through without incident. With the dark green especially, the dark rims show through more and more as the glaze fluxes each time and moves away from the sharp rim.
It’s sad to know lots of these pots will sit at home whilst I’m away in Japan. I want to save some for a collection that might be exhibited, while the rest will be going up on my shop once I’m back, but that wont be for six months. I will be doing a much bigger shop update this Sunday though, it’ll include lots of mugs and bowls, bud vases, a palette set and a number of one off vessels with the linear markings. I didn’t get a chance to thank everyone who bought from the last update, but if you did then thank you, and thanks to everyone whose supported me this past year and made all this possible, I’d not be doing this if it weren’t for you.
