Glazed and Fired Bird Cafe

A few days ago I showed you a photo of a bisque fired bird feeder that a friend has commissioned me to make. Well, it has now been glazed and fired, and here is the finished item. Michele left me to choose the colour scheme so I went for tones that would blend in with her garden but would also be noticed.

This photo shows the bird cafe glazed but unfired. I just love the colours of glazes before firing - so mellow and without a hint of how they will look when they come out of the kiln. Needless to say, I had to take a quick peak inside the kiln while my ceramic pieces were still cooling!

I also fired some pieces that have been made into earrings, rings and brooches, but that is for another day. Keep checking back!
