Killer Ash, not so killer photo. Aren't you TEACHING people how to photograph? C'mon now!

Ouch,

Critical little shit.

Yes, you are correct but taking photos in British Columbia in a room with 20 potters trying to get out of town makes it difficult at best. and did I mention I had to hurry up.

Try the glaze though and you will be happy.

It may improve your outlook on life!

E,

Actually the interesting thing about this glaze is that it is matt at first and in an iron progression test it goes glossy at about 4-5% and then back to matt at about 9- 10%
