I have been putting aside some pieces to kiln fire (vs. torch fire). These pieces have been shaped and formed in the clay mode, dried, and now ready to be fired. (spot my fave: baby inukshuk)
Pics show before firing, after firing (now fine silver), and in tumbler (fire scale removed) ready to take on a good polishing. You will see these pieces show up as a component in a finished piece or as a solo pendant.
