I've been working with some new glazes and for the most part, I am happy. But you know, sometimes no matter how much testing you do things just don't come out right. For example look at those nasty glaze drips up there. Might be somewhat interesting on the rim of a pot but not on the bottom of these pendants. And then there is the just plain ugly, what was I thinking, kind of glazing. Oh, well live and learn. There is always another kiln load to look forward to.
Now lets talk about down right ugly. I live in West Texas. July is hot, dry, sunny, and arid. What's up with the 75% humidity, gray skies, thunderstorms, and intermittent rain? This is market weekend. Oh wait, I live in West Texas. The weather is unpredictable. Whew, I'm glad I got that one figured out.
