Preparing for a glaze firing

Currently in the studio, I am preparing for the first glaze firing in my own kiln. This is all experimental, as it generally is with glazing. Here is a photo of what I prepared today and yesterday. I am getting very excited. I just have a few more pieces to go before I have a kiln load ready. These are mostly glazes I am using for the first or second time. When I am painting on canvas, what I see is what I get. With glazing, it is a totally different game. The raw glazes are different colors than they will be when they come out of the kiln.
