UnpredictaBottle

This bottle is an example of just how fragile the elements of glazing can be. This bottle was glazed with two different glazes. The only place the glaze came out as I, Asa, suspected was on the top in that flare of red. The kiln will take what you have put in to it an

d change it as it sees fit through the flames. In the unpredictability that comes with glazing, your sense of control is taken away, but that’s okay. For some this thought is a nightmare. For someone who has worked with pottery for some time, the revelation occurs that in this lack of control, the unpredictable actions of the vessel related to the kiln can produce by far more beauty than you ever could have created if the two decided to go by Your plan. You can put in time, but ultimately you need to approach this with faith. Sometimes you won’t like what you see but other times you will. Enjoy this bottle and know that it is a product beyond me, for it could not be duplicated if anyone should ever try.
