These are low fire clay items, some with glazes I have never used before, some are forms I have previously only made with Cone 5 clay, and on several, I have used my new foam cuts to create relief images

and this box, used various sizes of trees using this foamcut:
And these cute little stick figure plates from foam cuts
Opened Kiln this week, most of the items were made well before the foam cut thing got a hold of me, now of course I have so many, I need to start working with them. I did manage to get one piece made using the foam, glazed and fired.
My next kiln load will be mostly things I am making with the foam relief on them. It is just so much fun. Here are a few items from the kiln load this week:

In the meantime, I am trying to get a kiln load of low fire items, most of which will feature the bas relief resulting from impressing the foam cuts. Here are a few in progress:
