They’re glazed and in the kiln. Now, we pray to the kiln guardians and wait. Here’s hoping that Fridays kiln opening reveals much beauty! #fingerscrossed #glaze #ceramic #ceramics #clay #clayeveryday #pottery #potteryporn #art #koi #lhanesprocess #vase #houseware #homedecor #veaa

Step 5: cobalt oxide! Just paint it everywhere then sponge off the top. It looks a mess right now and it discolours the wax resist but all that mess turns into shadow and interest when it’s fired. All that left is a second bisque firing and some creative glazing. Stay tuned for the finished piece! #clayeveryday #clay #ceramic #ceramics #pottery #potteryporn #koi #liddedbowl #lhanesprocess #cherryblossom #cobalt #waxresist #rio #stain #oxide #art #instaart

Step 4: remove some RIO with a damp sponge to show off all the detail. I like I leave a little on the rocky areas to help create some extra depth when the cobalt goes on. #ceramic #clayeveryday #lhanesprocess #rio #koi #liddedbowl #pottery #potteryporn #ceramics #art #instaart

A little something that’s been sitting on my shelf awaiting oxides  and stains - can’t decide which ones to use. Cobalt, chrome green, red iron? What do you think?  Don’t forget to like, follow, and share! :)

The first iPod/iPhone ceramic amplifier. Sadly he was crushed by a falling flower pot and didn’t have a chance to be finished. Thinking about taking another stab at it moving into the fall. #music #clayeveryday #clay #amp #sing #ceramic #deathbyflowers #pottery #potteryporn #greenware

Finished sculpting the koi on this lidded bowl last night. Ready for bisque firing. #clayeveryday #clay #ceramic #pottery #potteryporn #waxresist #koi #cherryblossom #art
