I think I was so traumatised I forgot to tell you.
I was a tad shocked.
Opened my kiln Monday lunch time and where there should be a shelf of red items, there are one or two with a flash of red, but the rest are pale.
I know we had problems firing on saturday, but I did not expect this.
So I had a total shock and panic and what am I going to do for the show which is only two weeks off?
Emailed the wonderful Matthew Blakely and he told me that I could re glaze and re fire the reds, and so that is what I’ll do.
And for some of the pale stuff that did not quite work, I have gorgeous decals.
Decals are my friends.
So a learning curve but I guess I’m now a proper potter.
And we can still retrieve a firing that was not that successful.
