Okay--this batch had sooo many colors--and the last batch, if you look for the yellowish oval piece towards the left corner, almost all came out goldish. I have been packing the container, layering charcoal over the pieces until I have the container filled to the brim. This time I inverted the lid, to make more of a seal, so to speak, and wow--the colors!! The dusty blues are awesome!! You can see some of the fired pieces from the sunshine drying photo below in the older post.
