Hope everyone had a great three day weekend!
We are starting week 2 on the wheel!
-Make sure you have scheduled a time for one on one time with me. This really helps you to get going on throwing. Many of you have already come in, and you are doing well!
-Document the throwing steps on your blog. You will have time for this on Wednesday. I will be checking blogs on Wednesday night. So let's all do this!
-Open studio will be this Saturday from 9-12 Getting extra time on the wheel practicing makes all the difference
REMEMBER WE WILL BE FIRING THE GAS KILN (REDUCTION) SOON SO GET YOUR SGRAFFITO AND WATER-ETCHED TUMBLERS GLAZED! BE SURE TO PUT GLAZED PIECE ON THE SHELVES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE DOOR IN THE KILN ROOM. DON'T FORGET TO WIPE ALL OF THE GLAZE OFF THE BOTTOM OF THE PIECES, OR THEY WILL NOT BE FIRED.
Continue to work on your 3 organic forms
Remember you will be using 3 different kinds of glazing techniques
1. Naked Raku (This form will need terra sigillata put on it!) You will have color choices!
2. Lichen Glazes (Make sure you pick the form that goes with glaze!)
3. Crystalline Glaze (This piece will need a catcher)
Make sure you are photographing your progress and putting this on your blog!
Blogs will be checked on Wednesday night! Make sure you have them done!
