I made a quick video of my first test firing since I moved my studio. It turned out great. Take a look and let me know. I was most excited about the red and the Shino.

Brian great video and a tightly stacked kiln, it probably took you hours. I think your firing turned out fantastic, every firing has it bleebs and cold and hot spot, well done. Denice

Very nice. I always enjoy seeing the studio set up, and work of others.

I know you mentioned it - but I actually was VERY into your green! I am working on a pineapple jar and have had bad luck finding a good green color for it.

That glaze is super easy. I used a standard 4321 base and added .15% chrome oxide.

Custer Feldspar 40%

Silica 30%

Calcium Carb 20$

EPK 10%

Chrome Oxide .15%
