Good morning YouTubers. I thought I would show some finished pieces out of the kiln. The first one I want to show is this large piece and I have posted two videos already about this piece. One is when drawing it and one is when it came out of the kiln the first time. All I have done here is put a clear coat on it and it came out really nice. I had red iron oxides, some symbols on the piece and did not expect those to show through it all, actually I thought I had covered those with slip because I did not really know if I liked it, but through the firing process, it kind of really dug those down and I liked it okay now. Not quite what I was going for, but I still liked the piece.
This is a red clay, fired very dark for varied reasons, I do not know, maybe the kiln temperature has left the red iron oxide on the top and clear-coated that that came out really pretty. My favorite piece of the day is this small vessel. It is made with the brown clay and I spritz some porcelain slip on it. You can see that on there painted on some symbols with red iron oxide and then high fired it with the clear coat and I just loved it. I think that piece came out really nice. That is one of my favorite pieces that I have made for a while. I have been kind of in a slump so it is nice to see a piece I enjoy. Then this piece is a small porcelain bowl. I took some brown slip and just kind of dipped it in and let it run a bit and put some red iron oxide on the top and then clear coated that. I liked that one. And then finally, just the real basic kind of some other jar shapes, the inside came out kind of cool and that is from those little grain’s bits that I put on after the grains were dry. The little broken up pieces of scrap clays does that kind of effect. Outside is pretty boring, round, brown, but the inside I think makes up for it.
There you have it. Just a little kiln load of some finished pieces that you can see and I look forward to seeing what is coming out of your kiln. Adios, YouTubers.
