Good kiln results

Last time I glazed these particular tiles, I was very unhappy with the plain, muddy results.  Well, I made some more tiles to try with different glazes.  I not only wanted to have more interesting colors, I wanted to simplify the process.  So, I chose three glazes:  temmoku, celadon, and California red, then blew a little Oribe on them with my mouth sprayer.  The results were much, much better.  What do you think?
 I also had some success with another test:  I put some rutile wash over temmoku.  I was attempting to get a gold pattern over the temmoku.  All of the pieces turned out well, but ran a lot.  So I could only save two.  You can see those below.  

Pretty cool, huh?
