After firing

Remember that post on some ceramic pieces that were "Ready for the kiln". Well, they are out. After the first firing, I put a thin coat of transparent glazin on top which not only protects them and makes them more usable, but also makes the clay darker, or with a deeper color.
And there they are:





I've been asked already to put them in the shop. There are more in the making. Maybe something for the summer, when it gets warm and one doesn't wear wool so felting stays on the side for a while... Who knows...

Ahh Marian so many posts since I was here last. You have been busy. I used to pot and loved it . I think textile and pottery are very similar. Seeing your pots makes me want to get out the old wheel again. No time I'm afraid.
