Hi Cyndy,

These are pretty typical of foil saggar pieces. You can vary the colors by firing lower/hotter.  Yellows for lower temp. 1100-1200 and maroons at 1400 ish. Much hotter than 1400 and the foil burns off.  If you wanted to get some of the black off (not that you need to) you can put the, back in the kiln and around 900 you'll see the black starting to disappear. By about 1200 all the black will be gone
