Love the blowfish/toothpic holder! That top fin looks very organic. If you didn't quite get enough glaze coverage on the Santa, you can glaze and fire him again. You just have to be sure you don't exceed the cone of your lowest fired glaze - if you glaze fired at cone 06, you can fire again at cone 06 but you can't fire again at cone 5. Sometimes you can end up firing a piece half a dozen times by the time you do an underglaze, then 3 or 4 glaze firings to cover some skips, then a luster fire, etc.
