This week I will be trying out some new glazes as well as glazing with some of my trusty reliable favorites such as Rutile Blue and Temmoku Brown (pictured below).
I plan to have my 1st glaze firing of the season this week!
UPDATE: First Day of Summer!
Perfect glazing weather this week: hot, dry and breezy! The glaze dries as soon as I paint the pots.
Not to mention great weather to line dry clothes 😉
Later, on the first day of summer . . . Gah! More waiting! Before I load the kiln, a switch needs replaced. It shorted out during the bisque firing. Luckily, it was not a glaze firing.
UPDATE: 7:30 PM My super-duper- tech-person (aka husband) replaced the switch. Testing kiln now.
7:45 PM: All switches turned on without a short. All coils fiery red hot! Ooops! Won’t be able to load the kiln until tomorrow morning now! Sigh… more waiting.
