"Masterworks" - Carolina Designer Craftsmen-Thanksgiving weekend

Above I am carefully glazing in and around all of the handles

Yesterday we glazed the three large handled urns that we made for this weekend. The 40th annual Carolina Designer Craftsmen is taking place at the Raleigh State Fair Grounds. Our fingers are crossed that we will be happy tomorrow morning when we unload. One of these pieces is destined for the "Masterworks" display at the CDC Fine Craft Show. These works are a collaborative efforts, between Bruce and I. We found it tricky trying to foresee what glazes to use and how to glaze the transitions around the handles - into the images - and then into his fossil imagery.

We were very happy when we finished that last piece. We turned off the gas kiln at 2:45 am and finished loading the urns about the same time.
We were able to tuck some of my vases around the urns.

I hope you two have a great show. I know you hear this a lot but you guys are the Glaze Masters! Wow, it's just amazing to see you there surrounded by all those containers.
