Glaze Firing

The second firing is the glaze firing. In order to determine the color palette for the sculpture it was necessary to do some glaze testing.  In this stage small amounts of glazes are fired on test tiles to determine the correct color and formula.  Once I determined the final glazes I was able to begin glazing the posts. Again it was necessary to seek out larger kilns for the glaze firings.  I would like to thank Judy Devitt at the Wortendyke Studio in Midland Park, NJ for allowing me to use her kilns to fire all 17 firings necessary to complete the project.
