This hand-thrown with yarn bowl with brown glaze with green accents, over a white speckled clay body. The look of the glaze is the result of the layering of several different glazes that achieve a unique effect so the look may not be able to be replicated on a custom order. 。The approximate size of the bowl:。Width: 16 cm。Height: 9 cm。Note: Due to the nature of the pottery making process, each piece may vary slightly in size, shape or colours.。Here is my process for making pottery:。Step 1: Preparing the clay to be thrown on the pottery wheel. I divide and weigh the clay into balls, then each ball is wedged or kneaded for approximately 5 minutes to remove any air pockets. Any air pockets in the clay can cause the piece to explode in the firing process.。Step 2: Once the clay has been prepared, it is ready to be formed into the bowl on the wheel. First the clay must be centered on the wheel, then formed into the final shape. Once the piece has been formed, it is removed from the wheel and left to dry for 1-2 days, depending on humidity in the air. 。Step 3: When the piece is dry enough to handle, it is considered 'leather-hard' and is ready to be trimmed. The piece will be put the pottery wheel and any excess clay is trimmed off and the final shape is defined. Any additions to the piece such as a handle or slip decoration will be completed at this time as well. The piece will then be left to dry to remove any moisture in the clay before the bisque firing, this can take 3-5 days.。Step 4: Once the piece is 'bone dry', it is ready for the bisque firing, this will turn the piece from clay to ceramic. The bisque firing takes approximately 7-8 hours, then the kiln is left to cool until the next day.。Step 5: When the pieces are cool enough to be handled they are ready for the glazing process. Before glazing I apply wax resist (liquid wax) on any part of the piece that shouldn't have glaze, such as the foot or bottom. Then the glaze may be painted on with a brush or dipped. Once the multiple coats of glaze have been applied and the glaze has dried it is ready for the glaze firing process.。Step 6: The final stage is firing the pottery, all of my pottery is fired to cone 6, approximately 2200 Fahrenheit. The glaze firing process takes 14-16 hours and another day for the kiln to cool down. Once the pieces are cool enough to handle, I check each one for blemishes and grind off any sharp edges on the bottoms. 。Now they are ready for sale!。
