Coleman Red Serving Bowl

The last firing was a good one for me, not only did I get the nice Groeger dragonfly serving dish but the Coleman red glaze on this bowl also turned out great. It isn't a deep, dark red and a few people were disappointed (did the reduction take place too early or too late or wasn't it a heavy enough reduction?), I don't know and don't really care because this is the red I like. I've seen the Coleman Red become almost maroon and that's not the color I'm after.
The rim on this bowl was very, very thin and I like to have a heavier rim for a variety of reasons. I ended up manipulating it and I'm happy with the graceful curves I got. Guess I like it, huh??? Well, yes, I do even though it's just a serving bowl with one glaze.
