Glaze firing weekend

This is the weekend of truth. Will all our hard work pay off?

Here’s a pic of a shelf load from the first glaze firing in the kiln. Shelves 2 and 3 still under wraps!

And here are some of the next load waiting on the shelf, to be loaded tomorrow once the kiln has cooled and been opened (currently sitting at 600 deg C, and not to be opened till 50 deg C.) This bit is torture!

It’s always interesting using glazes. The colour of the fresh glaze seldom looks like the final fired colour. These are quite nice as they are; can’t wait to see them fired though!
