Latest wood-fired additions

These two pieces accompanied the latest wood firing, but are a bit unique. The long necked bottle is a revisit of an old idea and technique which, to my surprise, turned out fantastic in the wood firing. I will definitely be revisiting this.

The other piece is a beautiful piece which dripped with ash and flashed perfectly, but not without consequence... the wadding used to ensure the piece is not fused to the shelves by melted ash, fused to the piece. In many cases the wadding comes off relatively easy, but not in this one. Instead, the wadding has been fused to the piece and I have to do surgery with a dremel.
