The weekend showed up again! We're back to partying everywhere, therefore it is time I tell you a little bit more about another cool party!
Clay is an amazing medium to work with. It comes from the ground, is easy to form and mold, and then once painted, glazed and fired, it makes a great keepsake!
There are paints specifically made for clay, which are called underglaze, and once it is cooked at really high temperatures, the colours become super bright! We then apply the glaze, which is what makes it shiny, and food safe! Which means that yes, you CAN drink hot cocoa from your new favourite clay piece!
The clay is fired in a special oven called a kiln. Kilns go to super high temperatures, and can be adjusted depending on the type of clay and underglazes you are using. Their temperature is so high, it's as high as VOLCANOS! 🌋😮
This is what it looks like when we fill the kiln for the first firing, in order to bisque the clay:
There are many different things you can create, and everyone can add their little touch and personality to their sculptures! I'll introduce you to our staple ones, and check the website every season to see which new sculpture we have in store for you!
For each theme, you have the choice between:
- A cup
- A pinch pot
- A planter
- A mug (at an extra fee)
Now let's explore the themes!
THE CAT 🐱
These cats are just meow-nificient! They make great companions, can hold your favourite candies, or even make mini cups of hot chocolate! They'll keep you purr-fectly happy. 😻I'm paw-sitive you will love it! ❤️
THE UNICORN 🦄
THE PANDA 🐼
The panda is such a cool bear, he is one of our favourite! Black, white and simple, he is a crowd pleaser, and never fails to make people smile! Turn him into what you love most, we adore him as a planter, since the plants make it look like he has a cool hat!
THE MONSTER 👾
Spooky or cute, that's up to you! Make the craziest or most adorable monster of them all, and paint it up in your favourite colour! Good times guaranteed, and no more monsters under the bed, you choose where they live!
