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

Now that the Chicago Marathon is over, I’m back in the studio and re-focused.
No more distractions. No more training. No more need to “go for run.”
So now I’m focused on my next soda kiln… throwing pots and replenishing the basics!
Now let’s not get crazy… I’m still going to bike. Let’s be real.

So I threw a “bag” of mugs… this time a new 25-pound bag made twenty-one mugs!
And surprisingly, they dried pretty quickly… and I actually stamped them today as well.

I followed that up with a batch of oil lamps. This time a little more slender… as requested!
These were still too wet to stamp… so I wrapped them up and will stamp them tomorrow.
