Urn: Lessons for Glazing

A simple urn with a band of line carving both on the main body and its lid.

Actually I should not have fired this piece in the first instance because its body weight is more than ideal. But I liked its shape and overall look so much that I decided to fire it to eternity. Human me!

Secondly, I wanted to achieve a certain effect by mixing two glazes. Couple of mistakes that I made here too. I applied way too many coats of glazes on its lid, resulting in defective glaze.  Even the main body was not as smooth as I wanted. Also, the desired effect was not achieved. Pointers for upcoming glazing.
