The recently biscuit-fired pieces have now been subjected to a 1250°C glaze firing, and the results are fairly good.

onto the glaze prior to firing
You never quite know how a firing is going to go - it´s always a bit of a nerve-racking experience!
Most of the pieces were originally underglazed in the biscuit firing and then provided with a transparent glaze for this final firing; and a few of the pieces had not been underglazed and were coated with glazes after they had been biscuit fired.
