Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Foundation for Kiln Room

Construction on the studio has started! 
This weekend I cleared the weeds out of the area next to the shed.  This was no easy task considering all the invasive vines that were growing there.  I love how pretty Chinese wisteria looks when it's blooming but hate how the vines kill the trees.  Ok, off of the soap box.  Today my friend Lawrence and I (mostly him) built the frame for the concrete.  I laid the plastic and installed the rebar to give the foundation strength.  The foundation is for the kiln room, the shed that you see in the picture will be the main studio area.  The existing building is 10' x 12' so I'm building the kiln room to match.  I'm hoping this gives me ample storage but we all know how a small space can get filled up quickly. 
The floor to the shed/studio was caulked and primed this weekend too.
I'm tired, time for a beer.
I hope everyone had a great Forth of July holiday.
