People often wonder how these pieces get made. Pottery is a multi-step process, to say the least. It starts with preparing your clay - measuring and wedging. Then comes throwing, trimming, and altering, followed by drying. Once the piece is bone dry, the next steps are bisque firing, unloading, cleaning, glazing, and glaze firing. After the glaze firing and the wonderful moment of discovery upon opening the kiln, each piece then needs special attention that may include grinding, sanding, and polishing. It can take weeks to make a single mug, so it's imperative to enjoy the process!
