Not as bad as I'd feared.
I opened it this morning and didn’t shout or scream. The bottom and middle appear to both be fine but the top is still under fired, at least it’s heading in the right direction and nothing is completly ruined. Phew! This bowl is pretty big for me, I think it will be coming with me to ClayArt next weekend.
The electrician did come, he thinks there is an intermitant fault somewhere. I’m being sent some new regulator dials so that I can change the ones currently on there. This may r may not help, who knows, at least it’s heading in the right direction.
This is my 70:30 Lead:clay glaze test, from the left fired at the top, middle and bottom. You can see how much cooler the top shelf is. It’s an ok glaze I think, I didn’t have anything proper to test it on so I will do that after ClayArt and Spring Fling etc.
This is my Sloway mud sample. Rubbish photo, there is still colour in it when it is mixed with me white slip, i think I will be able to use it in the decration of the commission. Fingers crossed.
I’ve just realised it’s 8.30 on a saturday evening, I’m only just home and I’m sitting here on my own working. What a sad little life I lead. Ho hum.
