Sunday, April 12, 2009 pretty colors

Pulled these out of the kiln this afternoon. I leave the bronze in the kiln until it is cooled to room temperature. Usually because I fire overnight and don't get back to the kiln until after I get home from work the next day. Now I have it in my head that I get better colors if I leave the bronze in the kiln until it cools. I have no proof that is the case....but I guess I'm superstitious about it now.

Lots of little dangles to make necklaces and bracelets.

More pieces from the molds that I made. I have something in mind...but I'm keeping it a secret. Once it's made I'll post pics.

But really....aren't the colors great!!!
