HOW I MAKE MY PIECES
I roll out a slab of clay and cut it to size and roll it around tubes. Where clay tubes touch each other I brush in clay slip and firmly press them together. Then I put the bottom on. I rolled a textured roller and pressed this texture into it. As soon as the clay can hold its shape I remove the tubes. Clay shrinks when drying and if I don’t remove the tubes before the clay shrinks the clay will crack and I have to toss the clay back in my recycle bucket.
I put my container on my drying shelf under plastic to dry slowly so my seams stay together. It is then fired in my electric kiln to bisque fire it.
I glaze my pen holders in a variety of glazes and then fire them in at a higher temperature in my kiln. It takes several hours to fire it then I let it cool to room temperature for a few days in the kiln.
Ready to ship. I wrap my pottery in bubble wrap, then I pack it tightly in the box surrounding it with Styrofoam peanuts. If possible I use recyclable packing material to save them from going into the landfill.
