First Kiln Firing in New Workshop

I had my evening class on Monday evening
and we glazed our pots and loaded the kiln for My first Firing in
the New Workshop.
A view of the top spy hole at around 960 0c
This is the kiln open this morning.

Most of the pots on this shelf are glazed with the Ash Glaze I made from the trees that were cut down last year.
This is one of Wendy's pots.
A* I think Wendy for your first time on the wheel.
This is another of Wendy's
And Wendy had thrown this pot and then added to it and carved in some decoration.

And this is another of Wendy's carved pots.
Wendy is very creative and is full of great Ideas.
I was going to show you a picture of a Cake Wendy brought in for us on Monday night but it didn't last long enough.
Thanks Wendy that was lovely and I hope you like your pots.
This is one of Marion's bowls.
with an interesting use of slip.

And a Vase slab pot made by wrapping it around a bottle of wine.
very appropriate I think Marion.

Off to a good start. The new space will start filling up with pots before you know it.

Looks good, Paul. It's good to fire those student pots right away to keep the enthusiasm going.

These pots look really good for first attempts. I teach a lot of students that would love to do something this good during the first few weeks.

Ha ha, my 'little wonkies' have their 15 mins of fame. Thank you Paul! Glad the cake didn't hang about too long.

Great first pots, brings back memories, love the slab vase.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
