There is nothing better than lifting the lid to a cooled down kiln and seeing the newest batch of goodies. These pictured are some new fun ones that made it through the glaze firing. Some don’t. Some slide to and fro on the rods they are hanging on and get glued to a neighbor. Others stick to the rods and refuse to let loose. A hammer is usually the only way to get a stubborn bead to let go!
… but that’s a sad ending for a bead, don’t you think?
