Enamel students

More pictures of student work coming your way!
This is my first time teaching the 8 week Enamel class and I am excited about all the samples and finished pieces my students have been creating.  I am looking forward to seeing what they are going to be making for their final project, which they will be starting soon and completing in a couple of weeks.  I’ll be sure to post the finished creations!

Happy Little Kilns

Our small kiln is getting a little shelf insert to collect our enamel spills

I seemed to have neglected my blogging duties… I am back in action after a relaxing Holiday spent with family.  My first concern upon returning was taking care of our enameling kilns.  We have some Enamel classes coming up soon so I want them to be in tip top shape for students and of course for myself and other enamelists in the studio.  After searching the internet and making a few calls I came across the Pottery Supply House and their technician Geoff.  Yesterday I dropped the kiln off and in a matter of minutes he had it rewired and back up and running.  After discussing the issue of cleanliness and enameling in a kiln they suggested simply buying extra shelves to collect any mess and prevent ruining the built in bricks.  A very economical choice compared to other options I had researched, and so simple!  Now I’m thinking I should give them a try this afternoon just to make sure they do the trick and to get some work done.      – Alexis
