This piece was built specifically for an exhibition at the Dallas Public Library. It’s an open exhibition which means: just show up with your piece (I think). The theme is “Reading to My Friends.”
Okay … so, the piece is built and red iron oxide was added when it was bone dry. Then fired to cone 05. Question is: What else? Do I add some underglaze and/or glaze and fire again? Or do I just add clear shoe polish and buff it?
Decided to add some underglaze and dark highlighter. Now, it’s back in the kiln, going to cone 5. Also in the kiln is a test piece with low-fire clear underglaze and some crystals. Thinking about adding those and firing again once this firing is finished.
