New Blog for Glaze Tectonics Platters

If you haven't noticed, this blog is getting left by the wayside. I haven't really done much here since the coma a year and a half ago. Most of my effort is now spent on my photography career and my consulting/webdesign business. To that end, I decided to put all the Glaze Tectonics Platter images into one place, one format, easy to use.... wordpress blog. So here it is:

I hope folks enjoy seeing the platters as they go up. Always enjoy hearing what everyone has to say about them.

No one ever had anything nice to say about this platter. While all the other massive platters outshone it, outmassed it or just plain out-did it... it was never relegated to the shard pile. I considered it the day I pulled it out of the kiln. This fleshy peach was not the planned color or texture I was expecting. It was supposed to be a crunchy reddish color floating on an icy crystalline fluid glaze. Well, that didn't happen. The pale blue soft bumpy glaze beside it is almost a saving grace, but not quite. All in all, this was a real example of failing to live up to my expectations, but I could never administer the coup de grace. I know that somewhere, someone needs this platter as part of their life.
