The Seventh firing was a lucky one. We now can better predict flame path and have a loading strategy that pulls the whole kiln to top temperature. We reached a solid cone 13 throughout the whole kiln, and still maintained ash and flame markings in the slowest areas.
Video of the seventh firing will be up shortly.

These are some vase just finished the black ones are carved and painted the ones in from are slip trailed. All the work in this group and the steampunk are made from '16' a miller cone 6 porcelain.
Cream and sugar  all steamy The gauge there on the sugar will be finished with a fake dial and needle and be covered with a glass or plastic cover. The creamer will have gears and other things in his gearhole that too will be covered in glass.
This is most of the group. Finally made a business card holder that too will have a watch movement under glass in the front.

Couple of close up so you can see the details. Just one last firing for the luster and I can start the cold work.

So these are the Steampunk pourers and friends before bisque after the bisque they were glazed and scrubbed. There will be a video of that process soon I hope. After the glaze firing they will be luster fired for accents. and finally found object and other parts will be made and added to work. The piece above will have a gear and mechanical insert that will be covered in glass and soldered into place. At least thats the plan now.   Tim
