Fresh from the Kiln

Finally have been able to finish glazing the tableware I made last year… but then inured my finger!!

So yesterday I loaded the kiln, lit some incense to the kiln god, turned the kiln on and twelve hours later turned it off.

Then the waiting…

About sixteen hours later I cracked the kiln to take a peek…. looked good, but still too hot to unload.

A few hours later, and the following was unloaded: mostly tableware, and a few jewellery pieces. Happy with the results, and will definately be making more. Hoping this will develop into a bread and butter line: fingers crossed!!

Some of these wares will be added to my Etsy shop over the next week or so… so take a look 🙂



Pin It!



One thought on “Fresh from the Kiln

  1. Your recent creations look great! I read your post and can definitely identify with the firing…and the waiting and the wonderful feeling of seeing newly-glazed wares after the varying stages of clay work. I have a blog and an Etsy store, as well. I am just now getting more posted on there to sell after the grueling fall show schedule. I particularly like the tan-colored glaze with the hand tool shown. You can visit my blog at Here’s to a prosperous 2012 and good luck with your new line of serving pieces.
