Get back on the horse!

April 25, 2015

 Here is my "get back on the horse" pot.  

 

Yes, you guessed it:  the glaze firing of last week was a mixed bag.  The original of these pots had a very bad case of "crawl" where the glaze pools in globules and leaves areas bare. Its not a good look and it means one of my favourite pots was ruined.   On the upside, the small moon jars that I glazed on the inside are sweet and saleable items.   I still felt disconsolate and confused.  What could have caused the problem?   I went to the internet and it seems I may have glazed this one slightly too thickly.   Anyway, after a few days of crying inside, I made another one - now I feel better.   Its the best way to deal with set backs.   We had just better hope that this one survives the bisque firing and makes it through the glazing.  I like it so much, I might have to buy it from myself in the sale...   

 

p.s. The husband should get a special mention here because this weekend was a boat weekend and he took one look at me and he just understood.  He said "stay [in the shed] if you want".   So this piece is really for him.  Thanks Jules.
