I want to make a giant bowl inspired by this one! (le sigh, I’ll add it to the long list of “want to make”)
Usually I’d prefer to slow dry everything over a week or two… but I’m trying to get a bisque load in each weekend in September! (I pay less for electricity on the weekends).
I have things warming in my oven and baking in the sun today! Will definitely be candling the kiln for a few hours as well. Here’s to pushing the boundaries and living life on the edge…
What is your opinion/experience with selling Christmas tree ornaments around Christmas time? Do they actually sell well? How much do you charge?
I’ve started making simple slab ornaments with a lace imprint, to mason stain (no glaze) on both sides. I love how quick they are to make and the fact that I can stack them up, even in the glaze kiln…
But I’m not really sure how many to make or how much to charge! What do you guys think about them?
Here’s some insparation I used: http://diyordie.elledecoration.se/nordic-design-collective/
I have one month to get all my stuff made for the Christmas show! (And a $500 order from a customer, which is a nice bonus).
I’ll be happy if I can get it all bisqued and at least half of it glazed by the end of September… Then BABY will come around October 10th… then MAYBE I can fit in a few glaze loads between then and November 15th, the start of the 3 day show.
One month. Eeeeeeeep!
Ooooh - love the shape!
The problem of not throwing for a week or two and then sitting down and starting that first piece of the day…
