Process from bisque to glaze fired (THREE)

A couple of medium size vases, one with indented sides, one with a fluted treatment around the bottom.
Raspberry glaze on fluted vase looks pretty good.
But look at the fun on the indented vase...gorgeous blue with a floating turquoise rim.
This was my favorite coloration out of this kiln; the whole thing dipped into floating, then when it was dry, the outside dipped upside down into clear.  And then just a little of the rim dipped into Mexico.  It's a good idea to leave a half inch for the clear to drip into the floating blue at the bottom.

Quote for the Day:

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
