So I have a lot of pots coming out of the kiln these weeks getting ready for Vermont Open Studios. My CVP (Central Vermont Power) meter reader was by the other day knocked on my door concerned to show me my the meter spinning like a top. That was my kiln drinking up the power. I really want the studio full for Memorial Day Weekend. I always find myself wanting to return to studios that where full of different work. In the past there where stretches of time where I did not open my doors, just feeling my inventory was lacking.
Here are a few examples of what I have been working on.
Few examples of plates coming out of the kiln. Little pic heavy. Been working on plates with different color combos. These are 10" Chargers.
So, again I have been playing with Mastering Cone 6 Glazes. First plate is "Oatmeal" with a glaze design of "Field Mouse Brown". Then the reverse of "Field Mouse Brown" with some "Oatmeal" on the rim. Then a plate of my classic blue glaze I have been using forever. After that its the old school glaze "Jan's Red/Brown" with "Field Mouse Brown" design on top. Lastly there is my blue with a glaze design of "Field Mouse Brown" and a pic of the finishing detail on the bottom of the plates. I always try to glaze bottoms as much as I think I can get away with and not stick it to a shelf.
Here is a picture of the teapots I shared in the last blog when they where just bisque.
Shadow box I had built, pegs on the ceiling beam (there are 2 of these) and added fixtures to the south side of the studio.
