Glazing Bowls, Cups, and Vessels
It's glaze time now that we're nearing the end of the semester and I'm starting with White Shino, a glaze that has a slick-yellow top layer when it settles, but turns milky-white after being stirred. I'm firing pieces in the soda kiln for the first time and can't wait to see the results.
I've made between 20-30 faceted and carved bowls, cups, and mugs and it feels like Christmas every time the kilns are unloaded.
Each bisqued piece is sanded and wiped free of dust to ensure a smooth application of glaze.
After all the care and attention it takes to create vessels, it's fun to glaze with a reckless abandon. These pieces are a white celadon and blue rutile combination and will meld together in the high-fire gas kiln.
