Work in progress

Fired  and unfired work
I've been busy at Hive with a number of projects, meanwhile work on the chalices has been progressing. All the pieces have been biscuit fired and are waiting for their next and final glaze firing.
Glaze tests
Trial glazes have been made, tested and retested to get the just right one. When the best glaze is chosen, all the pots will be glazed and fired. I'm getting exited and impatient to see them all together and finished.

Wedgwood made and fired thousands of trials to get the exact finish he wanted. You can see trays of his glaze and body trials at The Wedgwood museum .
