Just finished a firing

Well, first post. Here we go. I finished my last firing 2 weeks ago. Really pleased with the results. Got cone 15 bending at the front and 12 flat at the back so nothing underfired. The new clay bodies I am testing worked well and I'm now looking forward to using the for making work for the next firing which will be April time. Good time of year to fire. Spring in the air and the nights not as long. I'm working on some new pieces for this next firing for a couple of exhibitions which I have coming up and I'll post some pics of these soon. Above are a couple of pieces I like alot from the firing. New clay body with really course corderite grog, feldspar and Mountsorrel granite with a new shino  I've working on as a liner.
