flowers - a bit brighter

Flowers in the kiln.

Flowers prior to cleaning.

At least they are brighter than the last kiln load.

Lost it ? ? ?

It's been awhile.
I seem to have lost something in the last month.

I think the only way to find it again is to work with glass.
I hoped that the glass would just "come to me".

Obviously that didn't happen.

So . . .

This was my attempt yesterday.

Well - to be fair - this is not black, but transparent, dark amber. It didn't work.

I also experimented with some glassline paint that I purchased last spring and had never used.
This gave me some ideas, but nothing is completed yet.

Today - after my attempts yesterday w/ dark colors - I have some bright flowers in the kiln. Not sure where I am going with them, but I hope the color will inspire me.

My goal is to fire the kiln often this week.
I'll keep you posted.
