I had a great firing. I was really surprised not to have more orange peel texture since I added 4 more pounds of salt than I did last time. Still, I had some very nicely flashed pots with lots of atmospheric variation. Here are some pics and I'll add more later.
I really liked this faceted teapot, it was my favorite out of the six or so that were in this kiln.
I have about 8 of these mugs. My friend Greg Scott mentioned to me a while back about trying some dots on top of my slip pours. So here they are and I think it works great, it gives the pours a new dimension. I'll be doing more of that on other forms in the future.
Those two bottles in the middle were on the bagwall and I expected them to get blasted with salt. These are all nice, I have plans to make more of these faceted bottles in different sizes and shapes for the next load. I want to make some that are more flared out.
Two more teapots. I like that dry slip on the left one.
Like I said, I was really happy with these pots. My kiln is firing so much better than it was back in the winter. I am reducing longer and soaking at the end. I think these two things have helped remedy the problems I was having. I sure don't any complaints about this firing. More to come.
