Must have been tired yesterday when I was playing in the studio …
I pulled my latest Welcome Yoda sign out and was initially pleased! Here are both irid signs:
And then, as I was trying to catch the irid-flash on the (more square) Yoda, I finally realized why I couldn’t see it … It’s on the back of the sun-catcher – DOH!!!
As I had success with my first garden summer slumped bottle, I was eager to open the production kiln and see how my new piece (with additional flowers/butterflies) had fared on the cobalt slumped bottle. DOH!!! No Joy! On top of cracking into two pieces – all the colorful (red, orange, white, green and yellow) frit burned to an unsightly brown/black or darn-near disappeared. It was fused at the same temps (same program) as the first bottle. I did vent the kiln through the first half of the program in an attempt to get a truer red … Hmmm ???
I’ll let it all ruminate, but now it’s time to play with puppies ….
