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.

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach

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%
