Slip-Before and After

Tiles-After Firing

Tiles-Before Firing

The picture (to the left) I posted on a previous blog of my slip workshop with Mary Farrell of Westmoore Pottery. Since that picture,  the tiles were turned to keep them flat while drying and Mary returned to her pottery to finish and fire the tiles.    She smoothed the edges with a knife, did a first (bisque) firing, dipped them in a clear glaze and fired them again in her kiln.  The dull tan slip became a very attractive yellow through the process.   Mary indeed did her magic!   When I opened my box, I was delighted with the results.  My finished tiles are pictured in the picture (on the right).
