Lots of Stuff in the Kiln
I was a bit hesitant to fire tonight because the most recent piece was only finished three days ago. But I work thin, and the house has been very warm, around 80 degrees. And all the pieces felt warm to the touch, so here's hoping for a successful outcome. For those of you who aren't familiar with firing greenware, the problem is that if all the water isn't dried out of the clay the piece will crack (best case) or explode (worst case as it can ruin other pieces in the kiln).
Today I sculpted two little stoneware dragons then put all my clay stuff away for a while. It's time for drawing -- or painting -- or beading.......
