My Cheerful Mind

This little blog will be all about the things that help me to have a cheerful mind.

First up - pottery. I fired my first glaze load in my kiln yesterday. I was so excited - I felt like a kid at Christmas. The nervous, anxious anticipation made me giddy all day today - waiting for the moment when the kiln had cooled enough and I could finally open it and see what was inside. I'm happy with the results - it over fired slightly but didn't seem to have an effect on the glaze.

I glazed everything using an off-the-shelf transparent glaze (because I'm too chicken to mix my own glazes yet) and used under glazes to add some colour.
