Trying more Coyote glazes
Here are a few pieces that I tried out Coyote glazes on. The bluish one is "Blue/Purple" and was a bit too thick (even though I used the same number of coats as the other pieces). The other two are "Crazed Copper". They came out once and I didn't see the glaze crazing or crackling, so tried it again and still don't see crackles.
This is a plate I was practicing for whenever I get around to the communion set. It wasn't this flat and I tried to trim it when it was too wet, so know I call it my "non-pea plate" because the peas would just roll off of it.

There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
