I just realized I never posted pictures of the earthenware pieces I got from the last low-firing before the Flower Festival Arts/Crafts show. This platter is about 14" in diameter. It sold quickly (flowers, ya know!)
I didn't pull standard handles for these mugs- instead I threw a small cylinder and cut rings, which I then cut away a piece of and attached. I don't think it's something I'll do often. I did like the blue porcelain slip on the dark earthenware, with clear glaze over it.

Trying to fill the kiln, I single-fired these two. No dipping, all brushed on slip and clear glaze.


The one on the left is another single fired piece.



The left one is also single fired. The color is applied over the white slip, then clear glaze next, just a thin coating.
