Glazing skulls and bugs,

We are busily getting ready to load a glaze kiln today. Bruce is brushing the glaze on his skull vases. The Skull heads are hollow so he needed a smaller brush to get inside. I just asked him if he found it hard and he reported back with a "yeah, it was tedious poking the brush through the eye sockets and trying to get an angle enough to get it all glazed on the inside." I agree.

Below I am finishing up one of my insect jars with a small brush. I am adding another color for the bug's eyes. I always get a bit of a neck kink when I glaze. I try to remember to get up and walk around through the day. The garden is a great place to stroll and there is always something that needs water.
