Divas, here is the result of my cone 10 firing !
my titties turned out absolutely incredible. From left to right is the celedon, liz kraus shino, temples persimmon, and the iron saturate ! I also made one with rutile blue, however I posted it on my story and it immediately sold for $25 hell yeah baby.
Now here are all my bowls... After making 15 only 13 survived the process of the kiln firing. Only 5 out of the 13 turned out as I wanted them to. According to bestie Brian Harper, what happened was I glazed too quickly. Since these are slip-cast bowls they are thin as hell. I pour the mackenzie white into the inside of the bowl. I did that to all 13, then after I finished I dipped the bowls into the Hensley clear to glaze the outside. But because the inside of the bowl it had absorbed a bunch of water, so when I went to glaze the outside the clay wasn't able to absorb the glaze, causing these gross black blisters to form on the outside of the bowls
So I am going to have to remake all of them hahaha. I mean also the underglaze turned green in the firing, which I don't hate but I think I will go back to using the black slip and just spray it instead of brushing it on. I will also do the inside of the bowls. Wait a day, then glaze the outside ! I was rushing this entire process but at least I learned.
