Ceramics: Heart Mobile
I made these hearts a year ago--and they were a pain because I had to stilt them in the kiln because they are two-sided or glazed on both sides. I used a Western low-fire red glaze which worked great on a piece I fired at a class at Skyline but burned out at my regular studio! So only the large heart retained the red. I re-glazed them and fired them again and still no color. Later I was told by a ceramics teacher at my high school that red glaze is tricky, and I'm wondering if the fast firing perhaps leached the red out.
