Cone 04 – Angie’s Goblets bisque fire (pictures coming soon) – cat mug, penquin ornament The halo was caused by the last one above, which was glazed with a black and Enchanted Forest.. No idea why it made the halo! It was also directly beside the chalice with the copper and satin patina (the 2nd...
