The Sink Glazing Dance

Yesterday was glazing and loading the gas kiln day. Jeff and I had three sinks to glaze including this monster size one that is big enough to take a bath in...


We are fortunate enough to have an intern from East Carolina University this month. She took photos and a video of the process. It's been great to have an extra set of hands around the studio. You will be hearing more about intern Liz in future posts.

This video is glazing one of the smaller sinks. The big sink was a real pain, and didn't go as smoothly. I probably would have to edit out some of the colorful language in that video to keep the blog's PG rating!

The kiln was loaded by 6:00pm. I bricked up the door while Jeff switched out a burner that was giving us trouble. Our day was done by 7:45 pm. Jeff lit the first burner at 7:00 am this morning. We are hoping to put her to bed by 8 or 9 pm today. We are so anxious to get the studio moved to the new house. It's so much easier to live and work in one location.
