With no immediate show dates coming up, I've been glazing a LOT. Not my favorite thing to do. I love getting my hands in the clay, making beads, pendants, links...creating new shapes and inspirations for jewelry. And I still feel like I'm opening a special present looking in the kiln after a glaze firing. Unfortunately, between those 2 steps is glazing the bisque fired pieces. Just not a very creative process, and not much fun. So of course I have QUITE a lot of bisque to be glazed. I'm determined to get what I have glazed and finished, before I put my hands to any more clay. ... bummer......
I was pretty happy with this run, except for the white, (looks a bit like I used White-Out on them) and the orange. Don't see any orange in there? Exactly.
The dark purple was a very nice surprise, as I've been trying for that for awhile.
The white ones will go back for another glazing... clear this time. Hopefully, they'll look better after the next firing.
If at first you don't succeed, glaze and glaze again. :)
