Getting Ready for the Firing

Preparations for the firing next week are in progress. The potters have been busy making last minute touches to their pieces and glazing them. Here are some shots of the potters in action!

Each potter employs his/her own unique glazing technique. Ling Mei sprays glaze on her bowl and uses a pump to form trail patterns on her teapots…

Tuan Yong prefers to pour and dip this pieces…

Steven shows how to create zen-like patterns with a piece of gauze drenched with iron oxide before dipping the piece into the glaze…

Linda touches up her hand-build piece which she intends to use for her ikebana creations…

Hua Hoong shows Mrs Tan and Linda how to fold an origami crane for our stoke-a-wish…

The kiln shelves are up in the first chamber waiting for our pieces. Soon the kiln will be filled with pieces big and small, tall and short, all waiting to be fired to reveal the artists’ handiwork.
