new raku!

Well, I think my pyrometer is not working....the other day, I mixed up a batch of new glazes and the results were not what I had expected....they were nice actually, but just nothing like they were supposed to be. So I was trying to figure out what could have gone wrong...I decided to try doing a firing based on my old time method instead...pulled the pieces exactly 30 minutes after firing up and I managed to pull a few very nice new pieces! Always a nice way to end a raku session! So now I am trying to figure out if my pyrometer is broken, or if I am just not using it correctly, which is always a possibility! Also brought a bunch of new stuff, mostly stoneware to Artful Deposit in Bordentown...Paintings are on the way there too, just need to get the framing finished! These 2 raku pieces here have been listed in my etsy shop!

Very delayed post . . .

Summer days are flying by, and I am finding it hard to keep up with so many things, let alone posting. We just got back from Maine and it was great...I wish we were still up there. Not liking the humid New Jersey weather. Been finally making some jewelry again in anticipation of the upcoming holiday shopping season, but I guess I have to make more, because it sells whenever I list it...Can't complain there! I have also started listing some prints for sale in my etsy shop as well. They are more affordable than originals and I have had some requests for them...Here is a new one from a series I am working on...Poppy Fields I...
