Still Learning

I have been busy experimenting with new glazes and doing some single firing of pots ie not doing a bisque firing  but one slow  fire through to a glaze finish. A bit tricky because you need a glaze that can fit the shrink rate of the clay. A pot shrinks about 10% in the bisque firing so a single fire glaze needs to accomodate this shrink. And yes I have had some disasters.

Opening the kiln is a bit like Christmas…you get some presents you love and then there is Aunt Jane who always gives you a shocker of a present!

I have also sold some pots to Ray Nesci Nursery at Dural and Bonsai World at Jilliby so I have been busy doing what I love.DSC06702 converted edit DSC06700
