Last Bisque Firing of the Season

The kiln is loaded.  Ready to bisque fire tomorrow.

Final firing of the season

A sneak peek!  My newest project! 

Bisque firing is the first firing at a low temperature.  This first firing prepares the clay for glazing by removing all of the moisture from the piece leaving it porous but hard. The bisqued pieces are then ready for glazes.  After the pieces are glazed, they will undergo a second firing, the glaze firing, where the high heat causes the glazes to melt and form a beautiful glassy coating over the clay. My hope is to have this kiln load finished and in my shop, Back Porch Studio on Esty, by the end of the month!

Happy November!
