Sculpture and Architectural Ornament

Good thing I made a back-up pair of tiles,


because now I've got scrap parts to test glazes. Shiny white on the left, matt white on the right.

There's always a learning curve. 
On the first cracked pair, I let the packed clay dry too long before I reinforced the back.
The second set was packed all at once and bisque-fired just fine. 

Now everyone, please pray to the glaze-firing gods because my back-up pair 
is now my only pair and time is running out.

Beautiful! Praying to the glazing gods, and all their little fire spirits for you!

Thanks, Jenn, I unload the kiln today and find out if it's a go or back to square one.
