Pendants and More Pendants
The pendants are piling up around here. I have 45 earthenware pendants in various stages of completion and about 40 stoneware pendants waiting to be fired. Some of the earthenware pendants are in the kiln now. Seven are being coated with glaze now. A few are still waiting for me to decide how to glaze them.
After thinking about the stoneware pendant problem, I think I've come up with a solution. I made a few and I've been burnishing the backs of them. When I finish burnishing, the backs are shiny and silky smooth. They should feel nice against bare skin. Now it won't matter that only the fronts are glazed. I'm so glad and I hope I'll get results more like the glaze test tiles from an earlier post.
