sad but a puff of wind in my sails at the same time. Do overs are my curse, but if it is the learning which is paramount, and doing something "different" is the goal, and if following your gut even when you don't know why is what your doing, the results are still on the right path. I wanted this done by
Christmas, that is not happening, but it is getting done, and she did add many more elements that I never agreed to ( a mistake that won't happen twice)...so long story short, and a picture is worth a whole lot of words.
This should not have happened. IF it was going to crack, it would have done it in the bisque firing. So all I can figure is the lined pieces of two different clay bodies, just cannot be cooled at the rate they are cooling the big kiln. Something something carbon coring was told to me too, as a possible reason, but I dont' have a good understanding of that yet.


what I did learn is my red held strong, my slips were the way wanted them to, and I very much like the mason stain, burnished over raw clay body. I just have to give up that dark line on the bottom. I can probably still keep it on the top piece, none of the non lined pieces cracked an iota.


dark one cracked //unlined did not




this means the teapot has a very good chance of cracking, i might as well just start over and assume it will. The good news is the sescond time, goes faster, and is almost always a stronger piece.

So sorry to hear you're having problems finishing all the pieces as it's also a learning process with the kiln. I do love what you're doing.

Problems are par for the course, just as long as I still feel I am on the right track I am ok. IT's starting to look like a set.

I will email her these two and show her the difference and ask her if she would like a rim of the dark even tho it cannot be an entire surface or if she just prefers the white which is easiest.
I like the dark, but I also want what is most difficult. It has a iron type surface, where the white more traditional.







I am pleased with the surface of light mason stain that is burnished in. I like it much better then the stoneware. OF course I need another bag and that will be a long drive. Anyone going to Lawrence Ks?

Still drawing up my plan for the coop/tea box. Somehow I need to make about 10 chickens be visible in it.
I hope she thinks so, too. Your work is AMAZING. I think it's ridiculous and ungrateful for her to expect you to do an entire flock of chickens as well as her dogs, though. Maybe I'm just rude, but wow. That's so much work.

Even the cracked ones look fabulous, though.

I wish I could have made this work. I more bowls where it i did work, then when it didn't but I guess I give that element up.

attempt number 2. AT least second time goes quicker.

Still left to burnish.

Nothing good comes easy right? THe lid just wont' fit right so I need to do it a third time. I also just took the teapot off of the shelf to load it in the kiln and dropped the lid.
I have a terrible sad and am firmly on my pity pot.
