Fun Things From the Kiln

      No Comments on Fun Things From the Kiln

I got some more Fun Things From the Kiln the other day…well, the other MONTH…but who is keeping track?

I said that glazing isn’t my favorite part of pottery and I whined a little bit about how much I had to glaze in a day…and since then I have seen what OTHER potters glaze in a day.  I just don’t know how they do it and make it looks so simple and almost fun!  Like this really cute potter I am following on YouTube, Amy Palatnick (click).  Nothing like putting things into perspective!

Here are some of the fun things I got out of the kiln…

I love Cobalt Celedon on the right clay.
