2017-02-04 - Saturday - Things are happening

Saturday was a busy day.

We started out with Muddy Fun in the morning. Fun stuff for students and volunteers alike.

Angela was the teacher.

This student made a double-walled pot all by himself!

After lunch I began glazing my latest work. It's a long process.

I use a box fan on my shinos to make them "scum up" and bring the soluble salts to the surface. Those salts are what are going to crystallize during the shinos' early melt and capture the free carbon in the kiln atmosphere, so the more of them I can bring up to the surface, the better.

Shino, shino, everywhere.

Notice that they're bone white now.

Finally ready to go to the kiln.
