Thanksgiving Kiln Sneak Peak #1 11/25

November 28, 2022

So originally my plan was to take all of last week off of work and do a ton of pottery stuff. I was going to make some things, I was finally going to use my raku kiln, and I was going to glaze to get ready for the Howard County Holiday Mart. Work had other things in mind for me. I ended up getting to take off half a day on Wednesday, but then I ended up working Sunday evening to get ready for a workshop. C'est la vie.

However, since I got Friendsgiving out of the way the Saturday before Thanksgiving that left me with enough time to glaze and get ready for the show. I had a ton of holiday stuff that ended up filling 2 kilns with a bit spilling over into a third. The second is cooling now (pictures to come later this week) and my plan is to unload and fire the third tonight. The third kiln will have some other things I had on my shelves waiting to be fired that aren't holiday (elephant ears!), but there was enough that didn't fit in that I wanted to fire again even if it's not packed as tightly as normal.

As this is the first year I've been selling this is the first time I've done a holiday show. I don't quite know what to expect. How much are people looking for holiday specific things or just gifts for others. Packing for it later this week will be interesting. Thanksgiving Kiln Sneak Peak #1 11/25
