A few months ago I sat down and finally made a plan to start making ceramics. Its been on my mind for several years now but I never had the dedication to commit to such a large craft. My mom and her sister used to have a ceramics shop when I was growing up but I was too young to absorb any of the trade. The kiln has been sitting around taunting me for years now so it was finally time to buckle down and get serious.
The kiln was too old and needed repairs so I started looking for a small one to run off a household plug. Before ordering an expensive piece of equipment, I tried out some pieces using someone else’s kiln to see if it was something I could like and justify buying one.
These are the first pieces I’ve made and it was more enjoyable than I remembered from art class. Be on the look out for more pieces in the future!
