Just getting ready for tomorrow’s big show! Unpacking, cleaning & pricing the pieces from Monday’s cone 6 glaze firing. And loving the quick pop of color!!! These porcelain cups are perfect for a quick sip of water, or a quick shot of something stronger. Some may call them yunomi’s… I call them adorable!!! Fun bright colors and very smooth to the touch. Ready to go tomorrow!!! First come, first served… just like the collaboration pieces with my metalsmith friend Amy Taylor!!! So come early…

And don’t forget… mugs too!!!… you know they’re my very favorite thing to make.

A fun & colorful diversion from soda-firing. I think I need to explore this cone 6 glazing a bit more. I’d love to find a few more glazes that are deep & saturated colors, and yet break well in the stamps. Any suggestions?… please feel free to add your favorite glaze recipe in the Comments section. Thanks.
