Glazing and Drying

Several other small pieces that had been bisque-fired were glazed in this session.

Clockwise from top left: A linocut dragon disc, a linocut headframe disc, one square from a vintage stamp, an extruded tube ring with holes, another vintage stamp square, a circle taken from the top of the Maneki Neko teapot (to create an opening on the head for the lid), a heart-shaped pinchpot dish, a large circular pinchpot bowl, and the long-lost red clay ball made back in the spring of 2014.

The pinchpot bowl glazed on the exterior with Floating Blue and on the interior with a Glossy White.

Fifteen decorative iridescent aquamarine marbles have been placed down – hopefully they will melt into a nice glassy layer on the bottom of the bowl.

The pinchpot received an exterior glaze of Mocked Green, along with a white interior and rim.

Ten small flat shiny purple marbles were placed on the bottom of the pinchpot heart.

The two pinchpot bowls sit on a shelf in the kiln room ready for glazing. The disc with the snowflake in the foreground (glazed Navy) is a cutting from the head of the Maneki Neko’s head, which was widened for adding the hat/ears/lid.

The Maneki Neko teapot continues to air dry on a shelf in the kiln room. (The bowl and cup in the background belong to other students.) A solar-powered plastic waving Maneki Neko has been set there for comparison.
