pink flamingos!


SO, as you know, I have just developed a turquoise glaze. Looks awesome. You see me holding here the ONLY flamingo I have ever made, before today. I used kiln parts for the metal legs and neck because metal kiln parts are made of metal that goes to 2200 degrees and beyond. WELL, you know the thinking, if you have a turquoise glaze, its time to make flamingo teapots isn't it????
