YiPPPEEEE GLazed Pieces




This shows my new raised design. I like how the glazes work on the raised designs much better. I LOVE HEARTS!!!!

I have lots of hearts....some with raised and recessed designs. Some have slip that I have made designs then glazed. I am experimenting with slip. I love the look!!! It really is fun playing, experimenting and seeing how something will come out once it is fired. It can truly be a hit or miss!!!! I take lots and lots of notes in my journal whenever I am experimenting. Sometimes things get so hectic and I can be in such a hurry that I notice that I mess up my notes in that I know what I wrote is so NOT CORRECT!!!! My new thing in life is.....NO HURRY, NO WORRY!!!
Why is this so much easier to think than do!!!!

Here they are.....actually...not all of the 257 pieces. I worked Saturday and Sunday to get these items glazed.

How did you do so much in one day and have it all come out so beautiful?

Thanks Mary, I glazed these this past Sunday evening and then continued until about 4pm Sunday. I was the MAD GLAZER!!!! Actually, I put these in the kiln and they were really close. I did have about 3 pieces that touched each other....but nothing I can't repair.
I had to cut this post short this evening. Hopefully, I can show more of the items I glazed tomorrow.
