Well ... a mixed bunch of work out of the kiln yesterday. Three jewel-like tiny pots (pictured) and a white dish with rustic gold edging were just what I had hoped for, but two out of my three tiny black clay pots had cracked and the lid of my beautiful lidded box had warped slightly in the second firing. So annoying!! However, that is clay for you and if it wasn't a slightly tricky natural substance it would be boring. Back to the drawing board .. I will give the black clay pots, in particular, a second trial as the glaze effects were stunning.
