Happy Yule, happy Solstice! And may all your sweetest dreams come true! And may your feet tread serenely on this path which is full of enchantments for those whose eyes remain wide open.

And these are the tiles on which the lanterns will sit.

Firing at 1200 c. Ramp of 800 in 8 hours. From 800 to 1200: 3 hours. Hold 15 mn. Shouldn’t have hold it. It’s a bit too much for the Velvet underglazes which turned a bit too shiny for my taste.

Ice Lantern

Traduction Française ici

Today was cold enough to try making for the first time an ice lantern, but it turned out too short. Loki tried to lick it and the wind gave me a hard time, but it’s burning now steadily. My little offering to Morozko:

Northern Lights

Traduction Française ici

There was a magnificent display of northern lights tonight. My feet are still fairly frozen but it was worth the discomfort.

Also available now for download is a printable Yule/Christmas card with its matching envelope:

Now… the aurora borealis, taken straight from my garden:
