FINALLY...I have a working kiln again!

I am so glad the kiln is working again!  I unloaded some earthenware and low fire pieces this morning...
 Some of these glazes I love and some...not so much.  But I really like this flower.  I want to make a necklace with a bead hanging in the center - maybe a small crystal.
 and I think these umbrellas are cute.  Maybe a crystal hanging from each side of these as well like rain? lol
 and some other shapes...
 These are 3 new glazes for me.  They look good on the earthenware - awful on white!
 Lots of shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day and because I love shamrocks!
 and some hearts because you can never have too many hearts...

Today I'm loading the kiln with some porcelain.  Looking forward to seeing those pieces too.  So so happy to have a kiln again!  Oh, and I have found a studio space about 5 minutes from my house.  I will be sharing the house with three other artists.  It's an historic house - built in 1884.  I absolutely love it! (these photos are from the Internet - from the 1970's so not the best photos but I couldn't wait to post them!)
Happy Monday!
