I have a glaze that has gone off from its original colors....but this strikes me as a great way to go off:) These muted greens and pinks,blues and golds are amazing. I like naming my series by the glaze visual properties and this one just cries out to me...tomb robber! I had thought about the Old Hags Bag, or Tomb Robber, or Grave Digger.
I can visualize a Victorian coffin breaking open and finding these treasures, old and crusty with age. Perhaps I have been watching too many Jeremy Britt's Sherlock Holmes series, or old black and white horror movies. There is also the Poe influence that I have been dancing around with ravens and bugs for a few months:) (Just bought the most wonderful Raven Ink and Brush on paper from Belvedere Beads. )
My kiln is back on tract, and I am enjoying the mystery of what will come out of the fire next. If you get a chance to visit my shop, you will see what I mean. There is no rhyme or reason to the colors right now...but I have learned to go with the flow. Though these are not what I expected in any way, shape or form...but they are still Wondrously Strange:)
Any suggestions for naming this glaze series??? Thanks for your comments!!
