First Kiln Opening
No shelves broke~ whew, nothing blew up~ double whew, and is that reduction I see??!!
Overall I am satisfied. This was good for a first firing. If a few pots are pouting, I can live with it.
Apparently I did hit reduction! This is my turquoise glaze- bright blue in oxidation, here more earthy, spots and breaking brown. I like it.
This mug is glazed with the same turquoise blue and Leach White on the lip. Hello iron spots! Welcome to my world :)
These mugs are glazed with a new color...but were in different areas of the kiln...hmm. The left was up high, while the mug on the right was much lower in the kiln.
Check out the bottom of each- the one on the right was more heavily reduced....hmm. How did that happen?
