My grandson pulled his first mug (Stormtrooper mug) from the kiln today. He made it all by himself, loaded it in the kiln to bisque, picked out his own glaze, glazed it and loaded it in the glaze kiln. He did a fantastic job! He was pretty darn excited when he pulled it out of the kiln.
Glaze chemistry and glaze testing is going on the back burner for a while.
