Omelette Bowls - Glazed

I've never been good at waiting.  I've never been patient.  Curiosity often gets the better of me.  So waiting for the kiln to cool has been torturous!  I've learned the hard way,  you can't rush pottery.  If you fire it before it dries properly, it will explode.   If you open the kiln while it's still too hot the glaze will crackle and craze and you will ruin ALL the pots.  So after waiting for nearly two days; one whole day for firing, one whole day for cooling, it was time.......



The red bowl came out first.  It was still warm.



Next was the Verdigris bowl.  Verdigris is that greenish colour of old copper roofs.



The Oatmeal Speckled bowl was third out of the oven.   And the final one ...



Was the mossy green Celadon bowl.   This is the most organic colour of them all.  All four had survived the firing and my impatience.  I can't wait to make more!

  7. All stunningly beautiful, I hope you are proud of them! Tough decision but I think verdigris just edges 1st place, followed by oatmeal then red, then green.

    1. You are very kind, Lisa. : ) The little oatmeal bowl has become my favourite. He is slightly smaller than the others and I always have a soft spot for the runts.
