green...

 A very cool unload today...this is a glaze I'm borrowing off my buddy Rose for some platters
 and my second test of the glaze batch and am happy now to commit to glazing tomorrow... It's an incredibly smooth glaze and does some nice ghosting across the surface of the pots..

And finally the last of the large tiles through this firing was 10C deg lower than the last one intentionally, I'd had some rather ugly warts appearing on my clear glazed pots and thought I'd test bringing it lower the good news is no warts but I think I like the Raku body fired a bit higher.. tell me what you think of it..

Well a big wkd again firing tomorrow with the last restaurant pieces in the bisque and getting glazing too on the big platters..

  3. Gidday Ang,
    Gees ... what time in the morning did you write your post!!?? It's only 8 oclock here in NZ and the link to your post says that it was written 4 hours ago... Never sure how Google tells time, (and maths is not my strong point) but... if you are 3 hours behind us (??), that suggests, um..., about 1am! Well, you're in for a long Saturday! Sounds like you are really busy, so I hope you have a great weekend. Good luck with the firing.
    (Darn... I've just seen the end bit of your post where it says Posted at 12.32AM... so you probably posted at the end of a long day rather than at the beginning of one... and are probably sleeping after all!) Sweet Dreams, P :)
