ceramics - honey pots 
5th-Apr-2006 05:54 pm
the last week i've been flat out and hard pressed to get everything done.

below are the finished item for lucky ppl @ fresty-val.  there's 50 honey pots, all glazed and complete in a nice deep red terracotta.





all thrown on the wheel and stacked to dry.




then packed tightly into a kiln to bisque fire @ 1000° c




i took them to tafe and glazed th einside and rim of each. a quick job with masking tape and newspaper.



they then got special treatment of 1080° c to finish the glaze off, and arrived out of the kiln lookin glike the top foto.

i recon they're grand!

2 sleeps and i am facing the trailwalk. 100 km is getting more and more daunting. the weather has changed and with the onset of winter i am a bit worried about how cold it's going to be.

Awesome. Though I have to admit, on first look, I thought they were the size of plant pots. I was thinking somewhere in the 1 1/2lb to 2lb range for the unthrown clay. Obviously I was wrong and thought your kiln was a heck of a lot bigger than it is ;)
