Catching up with my glazing

It’s been a very strange week, I have not had a lot of time to make anything new, and it’s bitterly cold out there. So I brought my glazes in to work by the log burner and finish some pots that have been sitting around for a while.

My tableware pieces with the tried and trusted Botz glaze came out fine but I’m getting pinholes with the Amaco Potter’s Choice glazes.

I can’t wait to use my dishes over the Christmas period, although we won’t be having Christmas dinner off them as I don’t have any large plates yet.

I fired the last 2 diet / breakfast plates : )

The square dish was handbuilt, I made it for crumble, or shepherd’s pie.

Kiln Fired ArtI was really pleased with this large jug when I threw it but it is a bit on the heavy side, I might have to cry about it 🙂

Kiln Fired ArtI love eating off my own ceramics, that’s what they are for after all.

I think this will be my last blog post until after Christmas so I’m wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Xx
