I thought it was about time I posted a few pictures of some of the pieces that came out of the June 20th glaze firing. Overall, I think it turned out pretty good. I am pleased with the results. As I was unloading the kiln Thursday afternoon, I was all smiles.

This time around, in addition to the blueware, (and a few pots with underglaze deco) I am making some pieces specifically to be glazed. The jug I'm holding (which still needs some finishing) will get a nice burnt orange glaze in the second firing. I'm hoping that the star figure will catch the glaze nicely and add some dimension to it. The plan is to have enough pieces ready by next weekend (the 16th) for a bisque-firing. So far everything seems to be on track. Keep your fingers crossed.
