What I Got From the Kiln Today!

Today was a hectic day! I went to teach a new class of kids, which was very exciting. They seemed to be very into my lesson, and they will start tomorrow. Then I came home with a few new pieces. I am glazing that custom order from the previous post tonight and will hopefully get it done this week. The other pieces I have are part of my Chevron debut, which I was really excited to see. I have only done two pieces with this design, and I think I like how it came out. The orange came out much better than the Turquoise glaze. 

I had such a hard time with the camera today, because it was a yucky overcast day. The pictures did not come out the way I wanted them to.

Here is the honey pot with its honey stick. I love the way this pot came out. The shape is perfect. All my designs are made with simple tools, like tape or squeeze bottles. you need a very steady hand to use these kind of bottles. I usually make marks on my pots with pencil on the wheel when it is bisqueware before glazing. I use one just like this one that comes with different size metal tips.

All of these pots can be seen in previous posts I have in either a greenware or bisqueware state. You may remember this mug from a recent post where I used tape to paint my pattern. This is how the finished product came out. If you would like to see more pictures of these pieces, visit my store! www.lizetpotterystudio.etsy.com


  1. The faceted tea bowls in your store are really wonderful. Is the white masked portion glazed too or left natural clay?

  2. Thank you! The masked part is glazed white, with a steady hand and thin brush.
