Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: pottery, process, production

So, Friday night I spent some time reclaiming clay and incorporating it with some other,
stiffer clay. Then I threw a few pieces with that “new” clay. Well today I was back in the
studio trying to finish off everything I threw Friday night. First it was stamping & trimming….

Followed by adding some colored slip accents. The slips I used are special for firing
in the soda kiln atmosphere. They may look dull now, but once the soda hits them,
they will turn into saturated colors like orange & gold.
