I got some glazed pieces out of the kiln. I'm not 100% happy with the results, but I've got some interesting directions to go in from here. I definitely have to do something with that construction orange glaze! I hate it. I have to find a way to tone it down. I think I'd like it better if it was more of a sherbet color. It's a commercial glaze, so I'm not sure whether I should just try layering it with other glazes, or mixing something else into it. I guess I've got yet another use for the latest batch of porcelain test tiles I made.

|It turned brown and ran. Definitely not something I want when I'm trying to get precise lines, but it's a cool effect! I definitely want to play with this a bit more. They kinda look like spooky ghost cats.|

I'm becoming more and more disatisfied with these flat glossy glazes. They're really kind of lifeless, aren't they? I love bright colors, but I think I need some more depth, or translucency, or variegation, or something. So much to do! I just wish I had unlimited time and resources so I could spend more time on glaze testing for myself. One of these days I'm gonna have to put together a Kickstarter or something.
