More shimmery birds.. Each new group changes a little or a lot. This group it was a lot! I admit the whole kiln load came out horribly. I set them aside, tried not to be completely discouraged. I was thinking of that old saying-- "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear". Very close to smashing them all I gave it one more try. More glazing and firings and ended up with this soft, opalescent surface, very feminine and romantic. I think of them as old fashioned girls. What do you think?

I have one more kiln load to go, fingers crossed!
