First Day: Kiln Opening

Today is my first day blogging and I'm pretty excited to get started. Well yesterday I did some glaze tests and I opened the kiln this morning. I am disappointed with the results but got a lot of useful information. The only tile that came out was the one that I used a commercial glaze on. Since I haven't worked with this batch of glazes it's a lot of trial and error. I also learned that my tiles are too thin. All of the 3x6 or larger warped in the tile holders. I am going to throw some test strips and small sample tiles with relief and test the glazes again.
