Ditto on what Vamp said. You really have the knack for working clay. The bowl is wonderful. I'm inspired, Wendy

The bowl looks great so far Mike. I love the name and the fact that it is a tribute to your brother using his original sculpt. Hopefully the glaze works out like you want it to.

Awesome gun! The king (no not Elvis) bowl is looking pretty awesome too can't wait to see what you do with it. So, Mike with that gun careful you don't get too hammered, or you may Spillaine your guts to a porcelain god. (yeah I know awful, awful puns). How much does that gun hold anyhow?

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on the gun and bowl. The gun holds only about 4-6 ounces, I'd recommend filling it with a nice sipping rum to get maximum impact

I had originally planned to some aluminum foil saggar firing on the outside of the bowl. Glazes fire at about 1800 degrees and the saggar firing is done at 1000. So "in theory" I could glaze the figures and the inside of the bowl with standard glaze, then saggar fire the outside while still maintaining a food safe finish inside. I had hoped to get a look like this (not mine)


Unfortunately, I made the bowl too big to fit my little kiln I have access to larger kilns but the saggar firing requires all kinds of toxic chemicals creating all kinds of toxic fumes - the sort of thing you wouldn't want to do in someone else's kiln and studio. So this will get regular glazes and I will try to saggar fire something else
