Getting ready…2012 Art in Clay, Palo Alto, CA

ImageImageImage

It has been a long month full of activity at the 2Frogs Ceramic Arts Studio…aka. Rutter Garage.

I finally made the jump and hooked up the kiln ($300), bought the glaze chemicals & supplies ($200+), and spent the gazillions of hours mixing and glazing and testing tiles. I’m on my 4th glaze test, each taking 15-18 hours of firing and another 10 hours of cooling to find out that I’ve failed…again. But bright side…I think I know what happened…maybe. The crazy thing is that the test tiles looked great, but the pots didn’t. So what gives? Another glaze test firing in the works.
