A couple of hours throwing and we have probably two bisque loads. I dunno how this small kiln is going to work out although Sheila says the decorating is painfully slow. This transition to low fire e-ware has us both in a funk.
My diner cups outta the last firing looked great except the white slip cast e-ware handle I put on them absolutely rejected glaze. Dunno what it was- talc, my glaze , just dunno. Too disappointing to show y'all. I emailed Grass Hopper and he needs more info. He did say why would one of the best handle pullers in the biz slip cast a handle? You're right, Grass. You have a few years of wisdom on me. I went out and made some more with pulled handles. I'm a slow learner.
