Glaze day

So today was my last class at the SA TAFE school of the arts so of course, it was glaze day! 

I glazed half of my pots a few weeks ago which all turned out amazingly so I had 12 pieces left to glaze today. 

Of course I made a huge mess but had a lot of fun in the process.

This glaze is called tomato and you can see the final result in the sample next to my fresh, wet glazed pot. She's going to look beautiful with some white roses in it!

And the after... These guys are sitting on the firing shelf ready to be packed into the kiln for a stonewear (super hot) firing! These colours are wicked because at the 1500+ degrees this orange is going to turn into a soft green and the grey will turn into a baby blue with crystals! Magic!

Check back soon for the final reveal!
