Project Examples, Search Your Imagination!

After each piece of freshly made pot has reached a stage where the clay can be safely altered in different ways such as creating texture on the clay by using just about anything you can think of.  I love to take old buttons with beautiful and intricate designs that will leave lovely marks on the clay.  There are several textured rolling pins as well as a generous variety of stamps. Any texture that is added now will allow the FINAL step, GLAZING to reveal the beautiful colors that the "fire" will bring to life.  I won't spoil the surprise for you but when I open every glaze load, it's like Christmas morning, for the first time!  

BISQUE & GLAZE 
KILN FIRINGS

There are two kiln firings included in your class experience. 

The first is the "bisque" firing which brings the clay to a more stable, solid state in order to safely decorate and apply glaze for its final firing process.

Glaze firing completes the transition of the clay to a solid and beautiful piece of work.  The bisque pot is dipped into the prepared glaze solution (or it can be brushed on as well) and put back into the kiln for its final "high fire" to complete the melting glass (glaze)

These firings take from 12 to 20 plus hours to complete at each phase depending on circumstances.  The final product is worth the wait.  A magical piece that you produced, something to be proud of!
