How long does it take to make your work?

  • Prep clay by weight.
  • Throwing the pottery (3-5 minutes depending on the piece)
  • Trimming the piece (2-3 minutes) creating a nice clean edged bottom
  • Applying the Lake Superior and handles onto the different pieces (10 minutes –including prepping the lakes and handles in advanced)
  • Drying time (usually about a week)
  • Loading the kiln and setting it to a Bisque fire (approx. 9 hours)
  • Prepping bisqueware for glazing, waxing areas: bottoms and sometimes the lakes to resist the glaze from sticking. (2-5 minutes depending on the piece)
  • Glazing the inside of the pottery (mugs, tumblers, bowls, etc) then letting them dry. (overnight)
  • Glazing the outside of the pottery
  • Wiping the bottoms to make sure there is no glaze that will stick to the kiln shelf(It takes me 2 days to glaze and prep everything from one kiln load)
  • Loading the kiln with the glazed pieces. The firing takes about 8.5 hours but about 15 hours to cool down enough to unload the kiln
  • We're done :)
