Today I unloaded both huge kilns full of bisqued pottery (clay that has been fired one time). We had a big glazing party and the students got to glaze all of their stoneware projects. We did have a few mishaps in the kiln and some of the projects broke or blew up.... these things happen sometimes when air bubbles get trapped. :( The students were all really great sports about it!!
Tomorrow we'll glaze a few more pieces and get everything fired. Here's a few pictures to enjoy.
My view this morning- clay is a white color after firing.
PRETTY! Glazed pieces loaded into the kiln and ready for firing!
These glass gems will melt and look like 'water' in our birdbaths! :)
