We had a great turnout at the building wide open house, and had wonderful time at the Awaken studio open house last weekend.
My Etsy sale reached 1000. I did not expect this four years ago. I started the Etsy in November 2007. I stumbled upon the Etsy while googling the other potters, and found someone was actually selling the pottery on the website. I was very fortunate to get into the Etsy early, when not many potters were there. I am actually a member of Etsy old timer team. Now, I see there is over 1000 potters selling Etsy.
I had two firings since my last post. I made the saggar about one inch taller and wider with the refractory clay, and the oxidation is back… And one of the saggar is split in a half. I am back to drawing board on this. I will put a piece of wood inside the sagger at next firing to see what happens. I used to fire with pots wrapped with straw soaked in salt water for a couple day in a saggar to get nice flashing effects.
