Roses are Red, Violets are Blue..

Sometimes it don't be like that.

But sometimes it do.

Le Sigh...

Casualties from the latest firing. It was my own dumb fault really. I was in a rush and didn't check all the legs to see if the glaze was too thick to run.

The result? Well the glaze ran off these two pieces and they stuck to the kiln shelf (which is why God created kiln wash) and as they cooled they warped and cracked and their sad tiny little legs came clean off while I was sanding.

Ping! Yep. Clean off.

And being my dumbass stubborn self, I searched all over the floor until I found the bits.

And glued them back on.

Because that is how the even-star do. Such is my crime and also my punishment.

These guys won't be for sale. But they were too cute just to toss in the trash. So I think I will use them to pot up my Christmas cactus babies my partner gave me.

It's been a while since I have had such a firing fail. Every day is a school day in this business.

Anyways... this is what they are SUPposed to look like...
