I have had some requests on my FaceBook site about this glaze and how I use it, so here goes!

Good things come to those who clean!
A set of shelves needed to be moved so we can get at the overhead pipe that is leaking in the bathroom directly over my studio. The fix is simple; it’s the getting there that is difficult. This involved not just cleaning but emptying said shelved.
Et voila! Way in a back corner I found this little cup (I also found a long lost drill chuck, but that is a tale fr another day.) I designed it as an experiment several years ago when I was working on gargoyles and mermaids for my neice’s wedding. At the time I considered it a throwaway, but now I think I want to work on this idea.
It’s terra cotta handbuilt over a balloon, glazed with Andrea Gill’s WOM, painted with Mason Stains, and fired to a hot ^05.
I turn off the vent as soon as the kiln trips and let it cool on its own. Bailey kilns are so well insulated that I never have a problem with cooling too quickly.
It doesn’t seem possible that January is almost done. Since Groundhog Day (Candlemas) is the midpoint of winter I have decided that my year is beginning now. Resolutions anyone?
As always, thanks for stopping by................*s*
