Glazing is sometimes, but not often, exciting to me. I actually kind of dread the whole ordeal. But, it brings me one step closer to my favorite part of the pottery process and that is finally seeing the finished pieces and setting them up for display. Glazing WILL be more exciting to me someday when I make & mix my own glazes and have more quantity to dip and pour the glazes instead of hand-painting each and every piece - like I do now. I spent the day (thank you husband!) glazing, will fire the kiln to cone 6 tonight, and can finally chill out a little about getting ready for my big show (Tapestry) on this upcoming Friday. The wares pictured on the right are all the bisqued pieces that came out of the kiln this morning to be glazed.
