I made a red car!





(new pottery by Gary Rith, showing the glazing stages before)
OK, so I was dreaming that I am down at a mall parking lot and my friends are all racing motorcycles and hot rods around and here comes this demented vampire and I kill him through the heart with an icicle....it was time to wake up :) BUT LOOK what was in the kiln, fired yesterday, out NOW (had to wear gloves to hold the hot car when I pulled it out to photograph).
I told you about making cars, and had made 2 plus a pickup. I just fired the second car. I wanted it glazed red with subtle color under showing the windows and tires, and it worked super great.

Speaking of cars, hot rods, motorcycles, my dream was a bit like this....
