I Can’t Wait to Glaze

There is some new Stone Monkey Ceramics on the horizon

Stone Monkey Ceramics

As some of you know the Stone Monkey Kiln is of a reasonable size and, at the pace I work at, plus working on the house, it does take me a while to get enough work together to fill it up. After getting enough ware together this weekend I did a bisque firing, in between tiling more of the kitchen floor. I was really pleased that the kiln gods smiled on me when I opened the kiln this morning.
And so the next stage follows and I now have to think glazes and finished on about 40 pieces of ware ranging from Bonsai pots, Chawan, Yunomi and a couple of lidded vessels.
Here are a few pictures of the unloading
