Successful Day in the Studio

So, regular readers will remember a saggar bonfire firing I did a few weeks ago: finally assembled the jewellery pieces that emerged from that firing today!! AND am very happy with the results ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course photography is hard, but if you look closely at these pieces, some exhibit a slight “oil slick” finish on the surface which I consider highly prized.

The largest pendent on the right has been detailed with some recycled tin which I use in big corrugated iron sheets to cover my pit firings.

I also assembled some earrings that I fired in my gas kiln last week: the earrings feature a beautiful stoneware dry barium glaze that exhibits a range of tonal variety dependingย on the glaze thickness. I am also very happy with them.

This jewellery will eventually make it my Etsy store, unless it sells beforehand: sales enquiries via this blog are welcome… as I have previously stated on this blog: I don’t want to have to work in a supermarket, so support artists ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Great stuff, Dawn! Apart from whatever we potters may EARN through newly-made pieces, there is a certain joy about work that has come out to our satisfaction, isn’t there? Those moments tend to make up for all the times of disappointment or, occasionally, intense frustration at work that did not have the desired results, don’t you agree?

  8. Hey Steve… words of wisdom!! It is those moments that get us through… but I guess it’s like that with all things… ๐Ÿ™‚
