I fired the kiln yesterday with at least a million pieces ... at least it seemed so. it took me forever to pour and finish all the pieces. There are 5 1/2 shelves full of (mostly double stacked) parts for vessels. Toward the end I ended up pouring a few fairies and woodsprites to help fill up the kiln.
I finished off one of the house shaped vessels. This is just a prototype. Have to experiment a bit till I find something I am really satisfied with, but I think this is a very nice start. Have to admit I am rather pleased with my faux heart shaped rocks. Now I am wishing that I had made more of them. I really don't plan of firing for awhile now. I believe I have enough fired pieces to carry me through for the Renaissance Festival this season. I did some serious making and firing of figures awhile back, including Elfins, fairies and wood sprites. And now with all these new vessels I am sure I have enough to keep me busy for a very long time. I am looking forward to working with all the new parts. I have many new shaped to experiment with that will really be a lot of fun. The quote inside the house shaped vessel reads "A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and then returns home to find it. -George Moore- ". The house shape is 5/8" X 1 1/2".
