Lots of decorating for me this morning, little birdies and zig–zag patterns on the mugs and jugs, they are drying out fast, I’m really not used to this weather, it’s been ages since I have had to wrap pots up in between handling and decorating them.
I unpacked my bisque, and I’m hoping that the cones will help me for the glaze firing that I will put on tomorrow, it’s going to be VERY lose and I think I will use the same programme but alter the energy regulator things more towards the end, I think I need to d one thing at a time else I won’t know what is affecting what.
The big jug will hopefully be decorated tomorrow, I’m hoping to take it along to ClayArt next week to put in the pretty little bottle kiln there that Paul Young is firing. Doug and Matt are taking along pots to joining in too. That kiln is being fired to 1100 degrees so it’ll need a wholly different glaze to mine, I need to find out Paul’s recipe for that I think.
