My latest firing has revealed some wonderful new pots. My glazing process was methodical and well thought out and the results were well worth the effort. My cupboards are now bulging with new glazes just waiting to have their turn; it is akin to having a box of chocolates and not knowing which one to eat next! What a wonderful dilemma to have!
Carefully matching glazes so there will be contrast and excitement meant that some pots had several layers and coats of various types of glaze, which takes days to do due to the drying times. I could really only guess what the result would be and yes there were a few that just didn't work, but then there are those that were "just right". It is always so lovely to find those "just right" ones, they feel right, the colours work and the glazing enhances the form, it all comes together in one special pot.
So now, with even more glaze tests ready to be fired, my already eclectic array of new glazes, I really am all fired up to make some more forms to take on these lovely glazes; to create new pots that will hopefully be "just right!"
