Recess Time

In between packing and moving truck loads of boxes to the new house, I've been getting in a bit of testing. I really enjoy firing with the UOP crew. I'm not pressed to fill an entire kiln, so I'm playing with the glazes that they have on hand. 
It's kind of like cruise control...


These are fired using a Freer glaze that's much, much better suited for salt... but it gives a nice subtle white surface in cone 10 reduction.


I probably would be wise to stop scewing around and stick to what works, but there's just so little fun in opening a kiln to predictable results.
I'm told I have issues.
