Results sample tiles & wall art

I was superpleased when I opened the kiln last week. The sample tiles I fired came out super nice. Even though it takes a lot of time to make samples, it is very important to know how it will look on different structures and textures. It makes future work so much easier.

Colored clay slib or engobe


New colors oxides.
The last one on this row is a mixture of cobalt an black and it gives a great purple.

The wall art came out nice too. I do regret that I colored the babuschka blue on the free fall tile though. I think it turned out too blue. Some of these will have a second firing with oxides so they will have a different background.
