March's kiln-load

Gilroy (Sunset Z14), CA(Zone 9a)

Got some finished stuff out of the kilns last month. I made a lot of cups and soapdishes because I was testing glazes. This was my first experiment with sprayed glaze using my compressor, and I didn't know how anything would turn out. I was really pleased with most of the glazes, and I like spraying a whole lot better than any other method of glazing I've tried so far. Most of these are ^10; a few are ^5. One of the big grapevine bowls has to be refired, again, as the glaze has bubbles in it. Not sure if the glaze was too thick, or if I loaded it in the wrong spot in the kiln. I think the glaze may have cooled too fast.

Currentlly working on throwing & piercing orchid planters...they're a lot of work!

The tenmoku grapevine vase was my favorite piece of this batch, but it's so shiny I couldn't get a good picture of it because it reflects everything!
