It's the final count down here at Smith Meadows and I feel like I still have a lot of work to do! I'm hoping to keep busy and to make it through my lengthy 'to-do' list, including gifts, commissions, and items to sell during the Studio Tour. Will I finish it all? Only time will tell...
I had so much fun glaze testing last month, that I've decided I should do it again--this time with rutile and red iron oxide. The blues and greens are great, but not entirely my style, so I'm really looking forward to a new set of tests. It won't quite be a tri-axial blend, but I plan on setting up the tests similarly and with different variations again.
So, step one: make lots and lots of cups... complete! I went for an even smaller size this time--more of a shot glass or votive candle size--and I think the doilies turned out the best yet so far.
The next step is to fill up the kiln and bisque fire. Then, the glaze-mixing-fun begins!
