I'm finally feeling caught up from the long firing process. Kiln is unloaded and I'm getting myself motivated to start photographing the new stuff.
I concentrated almost exclusively on celadon glazes this firing and got some work that I feel was successful, and in the range of what I'm looking for from wood fire celadon.
I'm going to have to tweek my lighting a bit to get the actual color of these to photograph as they are looking a little washed out here. They are actually a nice subtle blue/green in true light. You can see the color of the glaze where it is thicker and pooled.
I revisited this form with porcelain. These came out pretty sweet.
Here's a couple examples of porcelain porcelian cups, more loosely thrown and with the addition of feldspar "chunks" which I processed/milled down to a appropriate size. These inclusions create an effect similar Shigaraki clay but white-on-white in color. The small pearls of feldspar melt out of the body. I was looking to dirty up the porcelain so it would have a more natural feel and not so perfect.
This one has a cool iron spot
Another variation with cobalt brushwork, love it when it flows like this!
Another thing I was looking for from a celadon what a glaze that did not "fit" the clay body as well, so that it would craze a bit and therefore stain with use. My old celadon glaze did not craze much at all. Mission accomplished
Here's one that I've been using. It stain fairly rapidly. I've only used this cup in a couple of tea sessions so far.
