All right, first post for me!

A little information (because I always love as much information as possible, skip if you don't care): All of these were thrown. The glaze fire is a high fire. Most were fired in a (natural gas) salt kiln at about cone 10. Some were done in a Cone 9 kiln. Both kilns we put into reduction during the last part of the firing. I will try to give as much information about glaze as possible if you have questions, but as many of our glazes were created by students/faculty, so I am not sure how "standard" they are or if they will make any sense to anyone else. I am also notoriously terrible about writing down exactly what I do...

 The photos may be a little cheesy. I was trying to channel my brother-in-law who is a product photographer Smiley


Salt-fired. I wasn't ecstatic about the interior of the cup, but I loved the variation in color on the outside (salt! I love you!)

Salt-fired.


this is the same as the previous one except the rutile slip was also around the interior of the lip as well and caused the variation in color.


Salt-fired. Lots of glaze mixing here. There is a slip and then three glazes.

This was the same combination of glazes as above, but fired in a cone 9 kiln (without salt)


Salt-fired.

And here is a bowl, for good measure Smiley

Salt-fired

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!!!! Don't hesitate to ask questions. I LOVE this stuff (clay, ya know) and won't be able to get back to doing it for another couple months and talking about clay non-stop helps downplay the symptoms of withdrawal Wink

[edit]: I replaced the thumbnails with actual photos! Sorry!

Thanks everyone for your encouragement! I love clay--but I still have a lot to learn! Hgddm--I have considered Etsy, but they sell fairly well locally and then I don't have to pay for shipping Wink

Wow beautiful work, I really love the rutile - reactive glazes are always so exciting to use your never quite sure what you'll get!

Great work. I adore your third picture. I work with oxidation, so adore seeing reds in glazes.
