Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: kiln firing, masks, soda-fired

Two wall masks “snuck” their way into my soda kiln. They were a last minute RUSH project. Pushing my luck by making them fresh last Tuesday night before class. And then putting them right into a bisque at the end of that same class!!! More than a little damp still, but they survived. Glazed them and loaded them Friday. Soda-fired Saturday. Out of the kiln Monday night – less than a week from start to finish!!! Whew… and not suggested. Here’s a quick glimpse of them “before” as they were loaded into the soda kiln, and then “after” the soda firing. Just in time for the Holiday Home Show this weekend.
