very strange thing happened to the butterdishes you see stacked here. notice the sides. they have been re-fired to increase the green on the edges. nothing happened though i added lots of green glaze. someone talk to me about wax candles with "snow" on them. i think whatever chemical is used to create that frothy "snow" is affecting the glaze fire. i know.............too hot for wax to influence. however, the results are here and on other things as well.
