The Rest

Okay, so it wasn't bad. There were problems. Some due to the firing and some due, I think , to too thin of a glaze application. I had dry, rough spots on many pots. These seemed to be the ones on the flame face or on the top shelf. Mostly on rims or edges. I think those parts of the pot are getting heated soon, maybe too hot all together. It seems like the glaze is almost burned away. Not everything had that problem, but it was the main issue.

I brush the glaze on the backsides of my bowls and dishes. I need to make sure to get a good thick even coat. Otherwise the glaze is dull and a bit dry.
