Clean Plate # 1

Michael Kline

As seen earlier on Facebook
I didn't want to leave anyone out, namely, non-Facebookers. If you've wondered where everyone has gone, or if you're ready to "cave" go to this link, you won't turn into a pillar of salt. [You don't have to join Facebook to see the content that I put up there. Unfortunately you won't be able to leave comments there unless you join.]

I hesitate to call this the first in a new series, but here I go. Pots always look better with food on them, don't they?

Satisfying!
The rewarding view of a clean plate!

Another Bisque Note

Michael Kline

I wanted to put this in the blog so that I would remember...instead of unloading this pot and thinking, "what the hell is that little black blob on the glaze!??"

This cup has been painted and glazed. After that, I brushed some wax resist over the glaze and then cut through with a sharp little bitty trimming tool (that Becky Lloyd had given me a while back). Then I brushed some black slip over the cut through design of forlorn birdy. I'm curious if the slip will "float" in the glaze surface or fade into the under glaze.

[FIRING NOTE: The kiln may need a new coil or two as it's struggling to get to temperature. I have put some fiber on the lid to help it along. After all, it is 12 years old! It could be a long night of "stoking"]
