Tumbler 16

I covered this whole tumbler in brown slip and you can see where some of it built up along the edges of the brush.  Glazed the top half in white and the bottom half in Carmel 14, which left a nice overlap in the middle.
mason stain slip, recycled cone 10 stoneware, glazes
drips happen

I took a type writer key and labeled the bottom of this series of tumblers with a T for Cone Ten (I did the same with a 6 for cone 6) because it can get pretty hard to tell them apart after they've been fired.  If you glaze fire cone 6 in a cone 10 kiln, it melts, and that is very bad...and expensive because it can ruin the kiln shelves and others' pieces.
