A time to glaze


Bisque Firing OcarinasWith a sigh of relief and a longer than normal cooling off period, I opened the kiln this morning to discover that all of the ocarinas and MugPhlutes survived the bisque firing…in spite of some over-firing of the kiln that remains a mystery. From my experience, nothing about firing a kiln turns out perfectly and that would be the case in this instance as well. A few of the instruments warped just enough that they do not play easily. Those will become test pieces for some new glazing. Coming up soon, it is a time to glaze (click image for larger view).

    I am not sure if I will be posting Sketchbook Project material here, but I will continue to add it to the MugPhlute account on the arthouse.com site. Thank you for the note…I will be following you as well!

    Looking good, hope the glaze fire goes well. How do you glaze them on stilts so there is glaze on the bottom too?
