One of the great joys I get from making pottery is getting my pieces out of the kiln after a glaze firing. It's sort of like opening a present when you have a pretty good idea of what is inside!
Do you recognize the mug in the middle? (It's from THIS post.) I was nervous about firing it because I put so much work into the carving. I didn't want to mess it all up with the wrong glaze. It wasn't quite as striking as I thought it would be- the glaze turned brown in some spots- but overall I like it. And the more I look at it the more I like it- the brown is growing on me!
I'll have better photos of all my work tomorrow, and will possibly start listing some of the new pieces in my Etsy shop as well!
