It didn't suck, but it was a little too sweet and...bland?...for my taste. I may not have reduced heavily enough, or early enough, to get the deep, varied, mysterious blue-to-purple I had in mind.

I got lots of good information from the tests, and at least three keepers. See if you can pick the winners from these images:
|^6 Amber Celadon test|
|^6 Brown's Blue tests|
|^6 Magic White tests|
|^6 Oribe tests|
|^6 Old yellow tests|
This was the first test firing in my own kiln; the others occurred in Watershed's soda kiln. I was concerned about uneven temp, but that concern proved unfounded - there was probably a full cone difference between the hot and cold areas, but it was not enough that the glazes reacted badly, or not as far as I could tell.
