THE LAST POTTERY CLASS...

Well, technically yes, but the raku and sawdust firings scheduled for today have been postponed until this Thursday. Why? Because of the very strong New Mexico winds and the high fire danger this time of year. Really, any time of the year now that I think about it. I do have photographs for you though! These are the boxes of works from class that will be transported to the firing site. I particularly like the masks. These are photographs of my cake stand. I have glazed it with royal blue, purple and sunset red. Although right now it just looks all pink. The script actually has black glaze in the lettering that is supposed to come through during the firing. We shall see. The magic of the kiln! I made more shard-like pieces today. Here you can see some glazed and some new ones. I would hate to run out of them for my painted bags. This table shows just a few of our finished pieces. That roundish pot with the blue glazed rim on the right is the piece I burnished with the stone before it was fired. I think we did some super work!
