At this point I was back to using the gas kiln -- I had not used it much for the last ten years for a lot of reasons. Restarting it proved to be an issue .... I could not use the bright colors in the paintings since it would burn out so I mostly used chrome green and cobalt oxide stains. It worked nicely and they were popular. I also was working with copper red and rutile glazes.
I began doing more colored painting on bowls and other wares. They were a success in terms of sales - but I mostly prefer the blue and white at home... I pretty much stopped using the glass shards they did not work as well as I would like. I also did some work with putting red clay over grey and scraping a design into it.
an incomplete sampling.... this was the first year I participated in Rail Road Days in Snoqualmie Washington. I was joined by two of my students. It proved to become a tradition as we went out in 14,15,16 and 2017.
I glazed all the ware at once - and I was not crazy about the how the glaze turned out. Learned not to do that... Also was in a craft fair in the fall.
I have been throwing and making slabs out of porcelain since the beginning of June... So many ideas!
