Gotta work fast on hot days!

On the way to my last bisque firing I lost my one neriage bowl. A bit disappointing and I thought nothing to pitch it, but then it niggled at me and I decided to make another. I'm amazed that it didn't take as long as what I had in my head. Probably because I had done it before.

This is the latest results from the bisque firing for my cone 6 stained clay for my sisters tableware. Everything survived this round. Keep your fingers crossed for round two.

This is the new neriage bowl and plate.

I have also decided to make some brooches or pendants with some of the of its because I loved the shapes and colours of the clay.

Some nice kiln fillers to brighten the day!

Now to do some glaze work and get some stuff done before Christmas!

It is amazing how such a hot day can have things dry in no time. I can't believe how hot it is today in Sydney.

  1. Your work looks great. Worked with colored clay before will have to revisit. Yes it was hot thank goodness for aircon. Did manage to fire the kiln for a bisque still going. Did not write a post this week due horrid roster at work. Post pics of the finished pieces when you can. Cheers rhonda

    1. Thanks Rhonda. I am a little worried about the glaze firing because I have had some tests bow. That's a great effort getting your kiln going even though you were busy at work. Hoping to do a glaze firing in the next two weeks
