and then we rest

In 9 days, we will begin 4 weeks of rest. The kilns will gather dust. Our shop will be closed. Our minds and bodies will stop focusing on all forms of "work", and we will focus on rest and connection. The hammock is the only thing that will receive a workout. If our bodies tell us to nap, we will. If we want to swim, we will. If we need an early morning walk, we will. I am deeply tired. I am looking forward to rest.

Kitchener Mugs!

K I T C H E N E R || I posted three kitchener mugs in the Etsy shop, one of each of this batch's three colours: blue, deep purple, and speckled teal. Each of these hold 13-14oz comfortably and display the stitch pattern when held in your right hand. .Each mug is #wheelthrown and made completely by hand, and fired twice. I write the text on each freehand and we brush the glaze to ensure even coverage..Chasingfireceramics.etsy.ca North America shipping is included for each mug. For other, DM me and I will get a quote!.Thank you for your continued support!.#kitchenermug #kitchenerstitch #ceramics #knittersofinstagram #sockknitters Posted by Intagrate Lite

Kitchener Mugs – in progress

Babies waiting for some clear coat and then into the kiln. They'll emerge bright teal, dark purple, and blue after the magic happens. MAGIC!Glazing is still the scariest part of this process for me because it is an exercise in experimentation, luck, science, and trust. This batch of mugs, I am relatively secure with how these glazes interact at the temperature that we fire to (1200C/2200F) but we still have regions of the kiln that might be hotter or cooler by 50-100 degrees, which will change the resulting colour. If we apply the glaze slightly thinner or thicker, it affects the end product as well and how the glaze breaks, how it feels, how it picks up underlying texture, and the colour tone. And when we mix new batches, we'd better be sure we have the right specific gravity so that it applies correctly or we may end up with a kiln-load of destroyed pots. This balancing trick is why you might see a ceramic artist hold up an piece of their own pottery and admire the glaze because the magic and luck mixed with glaze-mixing skill is an intriguing art in itself that keeps us chasing perfect results. #glaze #canadianceramics #plainsman #wheelthrown #underglaze #howiamaco #ceramics Posted by Intagrate Lite
