The good news. This mug! I have been working hard to get this last kiln load out so I can finalize the images for my last two grad portfolios. When I saw this in the kiln I said "What the heck is that?" Until I pulled it out and took a good look at it. It is a complete accident. I tried a different underglaze and the shino wasn't quite compatible. Thankfully, I put the glaze on thin or I think it would have gotten sharp blisters all over it. But, I hope I can repeat this as I am completely in love with it! It is my absolute favorite of the whole kiln load.
The not so great news is that Kickstarter did not approve my initial proposal. Hmmm... I couldn't really figure out why but I think I may not have worded things correctly. I asked them for feedback and am waiting a reply. Perhaps I can give it another go. We'll see. Here are some more images of tonights kiln load.
Ok, gotta get these added to my portfolio and get some z's.
