This last batch, with the exception of 1 piece was all soda fired. The pieces are from 2 firings: one with medium reduction and a moderate amount of soda landing on my pieces and the last firing that went into HEAVY reduction and everything got hit with soda really hard. And then there’s the one cup that wasn’t in soda at all.
As with the pots in my last couple of posts, these are all up on Etsy.
The red turned out nice an mellow on most of the cup, but right by the foot it darkens and pools into a beautiful purple with a hint of blue.
This one is almost a little too big for me. But because of the wide top, you could eat soup or ice cream out of it. This is one of the cups that got blasted with soda and heavily reduced. It had the same red glaze as the cup above. Shows you the difference between soda vs. not.
I had some kind of soda slip on the carved strip, but it got hit so hard that who even knows what slip it was… The colors came out pretty nice, though.
This cup is one of the lightest ones I’ve made. and I love how the glaze turned out. It’s a slightly different shape than the rest and I’ve got a batch of this shape that I’m working on now.
This guy was inspired by the Shark Tank intro sequence. I used a dark green glaze but it got hit so hard that except for one spot the sharks are almost all gone. I do like it, though, for with all the color madness going on there at least the sharks are subtle. The glaze ran a LOT and had to be ground down about 1/4″ to reach the actual foot.
This is a yarn bowl that I’m trading for a delightful golf club head cover. (So it’s not on Etsy.)
