Glazing has begun!

My firing is 2 weeks away and I am glazing it up. I do a lot of decorating on my pots and it takes forever, so I try to give myself time to do it right. When I feel rushed I often don’t (can’t?) take the time to experiment with new ideas. Here are some shots from today’s work.

Thanks for reading.

3 more days of wet clay.

I have just a few more days to make pots before I need to start glazing. I’ve been making lots of sectioned trays.

Thanks to John and Kristen, I have all the wood stacked for my firing!

The weather has been unbelievable- hot and dry during the day, cool and foggy at night. Perfect sleeping weather and right for drying pots in the sun.

Thanks for reading. More soon!

Tests and mugs

Yesterday I threw 28 mugs and today I pulled handles for them.

I glazed my test tiles with the new glazes I mixed. They will go in my neighbor Michael Kline’s kiln this week.

I also trimmed plates, rolled slabs and
stacked wood. A good day.
