Continuing from yesterday, here is the final set of soda fired pieces from the recent soda firing :
Here they are, one by one :
thrown as a closed form, and then the hole cut off center. I like the effect, and the leaves turned out beautifully (much nicer than in the photos).
thrown as a closed form, intentionally wonked onto its side, and then the hole cut off center. So there is nothing regular about it. It is funky all around.
Here it is, in progress.
I'm pretty happy with this soda firing. Twenty colorful and interesting pieces is a good result. Looking back on my previous (first) soda firing, I only got 11 pieces, and I didn't think the color variations were as dramatic. But then again, I had different expectations going into that firing. This time I had a more open mind, knowing that the soda is very unpredictable, and I would be happy as long as I didn't end up with too much grey, which I certainly didn't.
Tomorrow I start a three day workshop with Tony Clennell, so I'm pretty excited. I'd better head to bed, so I won't be too tired to enjoy it!
