glazing cow mugs for Kate and Jim, the movie!



Starring Gary Rith, and then a little load for glaze firing in the baby kiln (the cow mugs on top).
I use underglazes for something like the cow mugs, then a clear glaze over the whole thing. The baby kiln is not often used, because I use the big kiln most of the time. It is the size of a trash can and can be taken anywhere and plugged in anywhere--and still fires up to 2300 degrees. I used it because I had all these tiny items, why waste power for a small firing?

My nephew's gonna love 'em, Gary! By the way...in the Spring, he and his wife are moving up near Cooperstown to operate a dairy farm. Dairy farming down here is almost obsolete.

I LOVE that little kiln! I need one!

Yes, a cute little kiln is useful, Ellen.
I am ignoring Denis, and let's just hope, Kate, that the mugs fired well.

I think it's a great mooooooooooooooo-ve to use the little kiln for small jobs.. and handy too! I just hope it's not too heavy to heiffer it around the shop. (ok that last one was stretching it) ;)

Fascinating to watch, AND! I noted that all your little presentations on YouTube are rated as 5 stars. Way to go. They're every bit of that in my book, and yes, let's pretend that awful pun never happened. Groan.

Greg said...

Sorry not in my nature to pass up a pun. I never want to be destitute and punnie-less.
