Watching snow fall in the woods…feeling peaceful.
“Wabi-Sabi ia a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
It is a beauty of things modest and humble.
It is a beauty of things unconventional.”

results are very interesting..i did 2 glaze firings.
first a cone 6 firing of red stone clay with terra sigillata, under glaze pencils and chalks.
the colors look very muted, colors burn out at cone 6. nice in a muted kind of way. and the clay has a soft smooth look. and it clinks like porcelain, nice. i want to fire these to cone o2. and see if the colors hold.
2nd firing: cone 04 raku clay. really nice results. colors are true and beautiful. i can see all the details of my work with underglaze pencils. no chalks on this group. the cobalt carbonate stain is a beautiful dark blue accenting the textures. red iron oxide is nice and rust red. terra sig looks good, too.
