I have been using these glazes for a while now, but I'm getting brand new results lately. Why? Well, I got the kiln tuned up (thanks Mike the Kiln Doctor!) and that made a great difference. I've also switched to white stoneware and I'm liking the change a lot! Finally, I've started to combine my glazes in ways I hadn't done in the past. For some reason I had not tried combining shiny and matte glazes... (what took me so long!).
Tonight I'm a lot more optimistic about the holiday shopping season... I'm doing my part! I'll have lots of new work at fair prices (in fact, I've just reduced my prices in my etsy shop). As you can see from peeking inside the kiln, I've been making ornaments and also some really nice teapots. I've also made more of the round trinket boxes because they've become very popular. I'm ready shoppers!
Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7 from 10am to 5pm for the 16th Annual Holiday Craft Show hosted by the City of Falls Church at the Falls Church Community Center, 223 Little Falls Street, Falls Church, Virginia. I'll be in booth #50.
