I’ve been patiently letting this winters cairns dry over the past 2 months. Three of Decembers cairns were dry enough to begin working their way though the kiln earlier this week. cairns, ceramics, RedGate, Studio Art, Studio ceramicscairns, ceramics, RedGate, Studio Art, Studio ceramics
Even with long slow bisque, I was waiting to hear the “PoP!” in the middle of the night. The bisque was Wednesday, and I fired off the second leg of the project last night. This was the first glazing for the 3 works. One was designed as a multi-fired piece, needing at least one more trip through. Another has options… involving decals and a re-fire. The 3rd is what’s shown here and might stop at this point, or I might try a low-fired blob of lipstick red crowning it’s top. That’s the problem with sculptural works… lots of fidget room.
