This is what I was thinking when I put this bead in front of my camera. Sure enough, I had forgotten to put a hole into it. What was I thinking? I guess I was not thinking. It is a pretty pebble though. I’ll keep it for display.
This bead is from the batch of beads was the last batch to come out of the gas kiln at the college. It is a stoneware clay, lightly swabbed with an iron oxide and fired to 2300 degrees in reduction. I love the warmth of this firing technique.
