Filling the kiln can sometimes take a while, its always a good feeling when its cooled down enough to peep inside to take a quick look, its an even better feeling when you empty the kiln and find that all your hard work has paid off, and you don't have any warpage, cracks and crawls on your work.

Filling the kiln over recent times has mainly consisted of commissions and replenishing stock for my shops, all great if the work has fired well. Yet not so exciting as I already know what I'm going to find in there. This is why I always try a little experiment or test a new glaze or make a piece to use in my home somehow.
 This way I get a little surprise everytime the kiln is fired.

Back to work!

Well thats my summer gone, Im back at school tomorrow for the new Autumn term and Ive already started taking orders again and have been catching up with jobs in my workshop.

Im not one for cooking but I snagged these cute stampers & cutters from my daughter and thought I would make some "biscuity" clay tags with them. Ive used a croggy clay that when fired toasts around the edges, they will look quite edible when they are finished. (In the meantime I had better wash and return the stampers before she notices!)
