Glazing Pots, Packing Kiln

Over the Deepavali weekend, we were at the studio to glaze our pieces and pack the kiln.

Here’s our glazing brigade:

Meanwhile, Tuan Yong began packing some pots in the first chamber. These pots will be closest to the fire box and will have the most ash effects.

We also made waddings to put beneath our clay pieces to prevent them from fusing onto the kiln shelves. If the clay pieces are placed horizontally, the waddings can create interesting patterns too.

We prepared a couple of saggar pots. Siew Kuan, Tuan Yong and Tia added straw, orange peels, banana peels in the saggar pots.

After a back-breaking afternoon, Tuan Yong completed packing the first chamber.
