First Foot-soaking Bowl Survives Firing

You've probably heard enough about foot-soaking bowls, but you're going to hear a lot more if I get this order. I'll be working nonstop for the next few months on the order if the client okays the first finished prototype. It's being mailed to New York this weekend or early next week. The bowl is 18 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches high at its highest point. Glaze is an Alberta slip glaze with cobalt. I sprayed the bowl green and loaded it into my electric kiln using wads to span two shelves.

I don't like the messiness of the white clay
showing on the foot. I sprayed this glaze and
the glaze stuck to the wax anyway, so I had to
wipe off the glaze and it didn't leave a clean line.
