circles


spent the last couple of days working. yesterday made quite a few tests for glazes and decorations and packed the kiln. only tomorrow will I be able to find out about the results. the kiln is taking around twenty four hours to cool down, apart from the ten hour cycle I set up for the firing. one has to be patient, although the temptation of opening the kiln before it is completely cold is high but very risky. I resisted!
this is probably the most anxious moment in ceramics. the kiln always has the last word. specially for a novice like me.
I'm praying!

Tempting for sure, can't wait to see more images of the fired pieces. You are such a talent my friend. Sorry I have been absent this past week, been busy with the house stuff. Soon we will be moving in. Thinking of you. ox Melanie
