it was the most PERFECT firing - look at these vibrant colors !
After years of experimenting with different glazes - home mixed and ready made - I can finally say that I got a reliable
color palette of 38 ...:)
it might sound much but
for example I use 3 blue/green (+white) glazes to make "sea waves"
I´m so proud of my new cuties:
Salix fragilis 'Bullata'...ahhh. it´s my all time favorite, fortunately
it´s very common in South Finland, you can see these lovely round trees everywhere...I call them "bubble trees"
must have at least one mushroom in every batch
old form - new color
I glazed some plain white clouds too
new design: " hilltop cottage" in delicate porcelain
3 w/ colorful little spots
this is actually one of my first cottage pendant/ornament designs: the "swinging plot"
I came up with the idea approx. 3 years ago
the form is just about the same, only the size is slightly bigger
The kiln is loaded again with wall globes, house and lighthouse pendants + test tiles, can´t wait to open the lid! I LOVE my wall globes!!! :)
On Friday I´ll smoke fire a couple of little owls and houses...next week I´m going to focus on a bigger custom work so it´s better to fill up my Etsy shop before that...
