Sometimes Fun Things Come Out Of The Kiln

The best things about studio testing, besides the occasional beautiful discovery, are the really odd things that come out of the kiln. This green blistery bloaty bowl is a test of a tinted porcelain. The previous tests of this series had too much copper, which leached all about the porcelain making it black, metallic and not much use for functional wares. We redid the run with a dramatically smaller amount of copper oxide, and that’s what came out!
