We had some really nice results from our last firing. Got some nice shades of red and orange flashing on some pots. We did lose two bowls due to cracking and a tall bottle that cracked. I took some pictures and I made a slideshow from them to put on my blog. I couldn't upload it to my blog, so I'm trying YouTube. Let me know what you think of the photos. I'll upload them on my Facebook page eventually with a more detailed report of the firing.
There's a picture of a "salt shino" glazed tree mug you'll see. We've decided to call the glaze "scum shino" as it has a habit of coming out of the kiln with a dry scum that can be partially sanded off. I don't know what that's about. There's also a couple of pots from potter Phillip Pollett of Seagrove. You'll probably be able to tell which are his.
