first firing

Result of first firing in a new kiln. The controller shown an error that was cooling too quickly. Noticed all wet work on the top shelf in the studio has dried up unevenly. Hot air seemed to be sucked into the small gap of the shed wall which has caused massive draught impact on the work. I had to seal the gap properly tonight. Ah, shed-studio haven... At least work inside the kiln was fine. Waiting to be decorated. xm

  6. Maki, these are beautiful. I especially love the bowls with the indigo coloured glaze. Your pottery is beautiful.
