More summer school session 1 pictures

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!  :)
