the work: firing


Were you all just sending me super good peaceful productive thoughts today? I glazed all 75+ pieces in under 3 hours- all by myself! Glaze helper #1 was unexpectedly called out of town. Helpers #2 and 3 had some sick child issues- but taking care of our sick kids is top priority. Everything is cleaned up and in the kiln, firing away. I'm excited to see how things turn out.

Happy weekend! I'm looking forward to some steak tacos with guacamole and a little margarita tonight- and glorious weather to garden in tomorrow. I hope the sun shines on you all-

looks like a lot of work! Did you dip or hand glaze?

I hand-brushed about 10 pieces, hand-painted the details, and dipped the rest. I get the best surface consistency when I dip the pieces.

Such great stuff, Melissa! I love it! I am so excited every time I pull one of the pieces that you've made out of the cabinets to use :) They make me so happy! I can't wait to get something else from you.
