Kiln

This is my kiln…Charlotte Skutt. Yes, I named my kiln, and I think it’s cute!

Here’s a little peek inside!

Usually I’m so busy loading my kiln, I forget to take photos. Then when I’m done, I remember. “Shoot, I should have taken photos!” Then one day, I finally remembered, and I’m so glad I did!

Hopefully I’ll remember to take photos more often.

A Flock of Birds

I have a flock of birds…waiting to be glazed.

I love these little birds!

I made a few in a darker clay body, that has lots of specks.

Hmmm…not sure what glaze to try?
