Not sure what is wrong with me lately...
So this last kiln load... over fired. melted... later pots. I've had 3 days to sit in this information and stew. I've never blown up a kiln load or over fired. ever. Now two back to back mess ups.
So since I only have 3 bowls and 2 plates left, I closed my etsy shop and won't participate in the December north beaches art walk. Bummer.
I haven't had the nerve/heart/energy to go into the studio yet so I've taken this time to do some drawings and work things out design wise in my head. Not sure why i'm never satisfied with what I've got.
Hopefully I'll get back on the horse this weekend and do some testing and test firing. (I fired to cone 5 with a 10 min hold and I only have 4567 cones in the kiln and all of them were down. :/ oops.
So here is what i've been sketching. I'm going to take 2 weeks "off" to do some kiln fixing/testing and working out some glaze color issues.
