Results from recent kiln firing

Here are the pieces that I unloaded today. We call them our La La colors. My niece was into the Telatubbies when she was a baby and she had a yellow one named La La. At the time I was working out some of these colors and came up with the yellow green glaze that I called La La Green after her yellow Telatubbie. The colors remind me of that show. They also remind me of jelly beans or Easter. I had a multi color pinkish Easter Basket that my folks would put pink, chartreuse or yellow crinkly stuff inside and lay candy in there. These colors bring back fond memories for me. Have you ever watched a Telatubbie show? Pretty strange. What is up with those giant rabbits? Pretty wild stuff.

My cousin bought a tellatubbie years ago for her son and I swear to you it said the F word, no joke. We later read a story that these were popping up randomly. It was so funny! Definitely thinking about Easter with those colors. Should make great Mother's Day gifts!

OMG I'm laughing at Tracey's comment!!! My kids loved Teletubbies then when our youngest, Gus started watching the dancing Boobah's that was created after Teletubbies we all would laugh because that's what Gus called women's breasts when he was little -boo-bahs!!! He loved that show too...

The glaze is wonderful! reminds me of gelato, sorbet and sherbet, mmmm.
