Betting on a Little Cock


It’s time for a bit of show and tell…

I’m a little excited about this one. This is a look at a sample of the bisqueware that’s headed out to the salt kiln at the Cobb Mountain Art and Ecology Project north of Napa in October.

 

It’s another round of experiments testing slip and glaze interaction in a salt kiln.

There’s a black stain that’s been applied and wiped off before the entire surface was sanded to knock off any sharp edges. The result was unexpectedly nice to hold and looks pretty nice as is.

There’s a round of 13 of these headed up. About half will get a thin shino dip, the other half will get a Helmer Flashing Wash. 

They might come out of the kiln looking awesome, but there’s always a much better chance they’ll just come out all cocked up. 

 

 Gotta take the chance though.

For a man that refuses to gamble, I spend a large amount of my resources just “letting it ride”…
