The last kiln pack of the month

I don’t particularly like these kiln shots but once the pots are in the kiln it is tempting fate to get them out again just for a picture but I am very aware that I haven’t posted anything up for a while. This is the last kiln firing before The Joze Show where all these pots are going. The big one with the agapanthus is going to be very blue when is it is finished I hope, I have painted it in cobalt carbonate which changes in the kilns atmosphere.
I am at that point where I start dropping things now and so I know it is time to slow if not stop all production. A combination of the extreme heat and a lot of pot making has brought me to this point. I have been busy though answering questions for the artist of the week feature on Made blog to be posted up next week.
