On snowy winter nights, Malloryville Pottery Studio is warm and cozy with the kiln running and lots of orders to fill. While the second bisque firing of the week is heating up, there are urns to glaze and urns to handpaint with pet portraits.
Hot News From the Kiln
The ceramic pet urns from the wood firing this month turned out so well! The combination of fire and wood ash produced some wonderfully colorful urns...tones of red, blue, green, purple, and grey.
Each urn I unearthed from the kiln was a totally different creation, in both coloration and patterning. While one urn was primarily greys and blacks with a negative, ghostly image of a fern, another had multiple colors and sunlight patterns throughout.
