Soda Kiln is loaded and ready to go!

The soda kiln is all loaded w/ fresh pots and a new ash glaze! It took me way longer to load the kiln than expected, I stayed up until 3 AM last night before I finally decided it would take more than one day to load! I'm so excited to fire the kiln tomorrow!!!! Here is a crazy;) video of the glazing and loading! Look for new pots in my store soon!

Cone 6 Glaze Workshop!


For those of you that were in the glaze workshop, and those who are just looking for some great cone six glaze recipes, I am going to post a few of the test results. For now I am just going to share the mystery floating blue glaze that everyone was interested in but there will be more to come. It turns out that both of the mystery glazes are from the same base with different colorants. The base is from Mastering Cone Six Glazes By John Hesselberth and Ron Roy.
