right on tfisher,
I like, I like it. Is the clear glaze over the bisque a high fire glaze?

Pop, the clear glaze is a low-fire glaze (cone 06). I have a stoneware mug that I'll be firing this weekend (cone 6) if I can figure out how to finish it...

This is a test fire to see how the underglaze paints run or mix together. I can't believe they came out this crisp. I thought after they got the glaze on top that everything was going to run or melt.



This is total experimentation. This is pre-fire or something like that...

These are the most recent endeavours, a little more detail than the previous stuff.

The green one didn't come out in the pictures, and I didn't have enough time to resurrect it. So, I put a separate picture of the face of the green mug afterward.








This is the inside of the mugs. I gotta get back to fillin' these things up with refreshments...

Here's some new mugs, fresh out of the kiln.

Backs



Side



Front



...and, finally, the part that takes ALL of the time, the inside.




I painted a hibiscus on the face of the one mug, and thought I was using yellow to highlight it. It turned out to be neon green, instead. I guess there's a lot to be said for reading labels...

Not sure where to go from here. I'm carving another prototype and have started on another (palm log) tiki for a friend.

Right on tfisher glad to "see" what you've been doing. Keep it up and keep the pics. coming. Don't give up, we all know that it takes time to achieve something worthwhile. You are doing great.

Thanks
