The home studio is now in full swing!
Even though I haven't written lately about any studio updates, there has been much going on around here! The studio has been fully functioning since January and I now have fired my kiln 18 times! While there are a few tweaks or additions I may still make, the studio is pretty much as I want it to be. I've been enjoying trying out new glazes at cone 04 as well as doing loads of gold luster at cone 018, something I was unable to do in the big community studio. I'm enjoying the AC unit and staying out of the studio when the kiln is hot!
I'm excited to experiment more with glazes, luster, and creating my own plaster plate molds for handbuilding. I'll be traveling quite a bit this summer but when I'm home I can't wait to be busy in my little studio. There is much work to make for the fall selling season! Did I mention that I am going to be a first-time participant in the Durham County Pottery Tour? Yay! November 4 and 5 my studio will be open to the public along with at least 10 other studios in Durham. I'm really excited to share my space and process with all the local pottery lovers. Until then, it's time to get in that little studio and throw/decorate/glaze/fire lots of pots.
