Thanks for sharing, I'm envious that you are firing...its below zero here.

we are having freezing rain here, but I got it done before the rain started yesterday.
Ice is on the lemon blossoms.

Nice group of pots, I especially like the refired with the aluminum foil piece.  Sorry about the ice on your lemon tree that usually happens here, just when the trees are blooming or leafing out we have a ice storm.  The trees look thin and wimpy the rest of the year.   Denice

Thanks Denice. Here is the last one. Missed this yesterday as my photo area is getting full.
I really find the linear development of the crackle patterns to be the most intriguing thing about this.

I'll be doing an obvara firing as part of the program of the Potters Council Tuscany IV at La Meridiana in May and June of this year.
Very excited to have it be part of the program.

It will be a nice addition. As I have said before, I love the rich organic quality of the surfaces that seem to have so much to say, but do it in subtle manner. Scrumptious!
