Anagama: Unload - The pots

Flashing, drips, shino and carbon trapping, these are some detailed shots of the work that came out of this firing. Very heavy on images. I tried to group and headline by subject but it's a loose interpretation.

Flashing Fun!
Flashing around the wadding
Some nice subtle effects
Combined with a blast of ash...
Seth Green pot
Richard Burkett pot fresh out of the kiln. The top actually warped but you can't tell from this angle.
Flashing on the bottom of Joe Molinaro's houses
The arch of the kiln even looks like it has flashing!
Love the orange on this horse teapot! 
Flashing jellyfish
Um, different kind of flashing
Another Richard Burkett bottle with some great changes in color!
Seth Green pot coming out of the kiln.

Fabulous Drips and Ash Effects

Subtle drips on Joe Molinaro's house

We tried to tell Seth Green this pot was for the kiln tax but he wasn't having any of it.
The crystals and color combos in this pot are amazing!

Shiny Shinos and...

...Carbon Trapping! 

And the rest of the fun stuff...
Some of my horse cups

It's not all orange!
Beginning of Matt Trimble's tiny pot collection
Nice tray that didn't warp!
Kristal Gilkey skull.
Porcelain subtlety
Jake Boggs

Tate Knob vase
Naughty slit with flashing
Crimson Duvall creepy creature
Another Richard Burkett piece
Not quite as hot way in the back so some cold spots and crustiness
