The first #hammerlyceramics mold making workshop was a success! At least the feedback to my face was encouraging! πŸ˜… Everyone left with a plaster mold made entirely by them! Thanks to @creekceramics for this action shot 😁 and thanks to all those who came from near and far to spend the weekend with me!

After. . Upon opening the kiln today I was reminded that what I'm doing can be frustrating and not at all certain. Two of the glaze combinations I was most excited for, made the most of, and had previously tested with success failed pretty hard. If you wanna see check out my live video. It's pretty close to the beginning and it's on the turquoise and purple mugs. . Now don't get me wrong there is some incredible stuff in this batch and something I cannot wait to show you in detail tomorrow! But seeing hours of your hard work fail at the final step always hits you right in the gut πŸ˜… . Preview goes up Thursday night! And the Etsy restock will be this Saturday the 6th at 1pm Est!

😍 Best. Firing. Ever!! Couldn't have asked for a better finale to this year. The first time I ever fired a kiln alone was just over a year ago too! Wow how time flys 😁 Go check out the replay of my live stream if you want to see the unloading! . Ok now for the nuts and bolts. Working on taking all the pictures now. Preview goes up tonight (hammerlyceramics.com) Then Monday at 8pm Est every single peice will be going up on Etsy. One last giant update for the year! This time around everything will be numbered in the preview and in the listings. That should help people find what they are looking for quickly. I am sorry but I won't be doing any reservations. Too much to do and I have to work tomorrow as well. Happy hunting! . #etsyseller #ceramics #pottersofinstagram #colors #mugshotmonday

Took way longer to glaze than expected so this picture was basically taken in the dark. All I can say is. The elephants take up a ton of kiln real estate 🀣 gonna have to rethink some things. All this will be at my local show next weekend. Now time for sleep 😴

#shopsmallsaturday is upon us and unfortunately I don't have much up on Etsy πŸ˜… My last kiln of the year is cooking away though! The goal is to have everything up Monday the 27th at 8pm Est. The quick turnaround won't give me much time to show off the new work before it goes up though. So if you want to see the preview as early as possible head over to hammerlyceramics.com and sign up for my newsletter. That way you will be notified right when the pictures go up 😁 Thank you all for your patience!

Kiln is cooking! I love these before and after shots so much. Highlights this last crazy step in the process in such an exciting way. There is a new glaze in here than even I haven't seen the combos for yet! 🀯 Anyone excited to see the after picture? . . #pottery #ceramics #makersgonnamake #carveouttimeforart #instaartwork

Some great! Some meh! πŸ˜… That's how it goes with high fire. Overall I'm very happy! I even have some brand new one of a kind combos that turned out incredible 😍 pictures coming soon! Thanks so much to everyone who watched live. You are all far too kind! Preview will be up this weekend and Etsy will be updated Wednesday March 7th at 8pm Est. The unique ones can go quick! Just FYI

Babied this pot like crazy and it still developed a small crack in the bottom. It dried covered for weeks before I trimmed it, then I wrapped it again for another 10 days. The crack doesn't go through and I mostly fixed it by burnishing the crack over and over. The walls are very consistent and it's not thick (for it's size). The only thing I can think is that I should have dried it upside down after trimming. Any other ideas to eliminate cracks in big pots?? And any ideas on how I should glaze this piece? . . . #bigpot #ceramics #pottery #interiordesign #planter

Y’all remember that millennial pink monstera mug? Here’s how pink (and olive green) came out of salt firing πŸ˜‚πŸ’«πŸ’© Not everything in clay work is predictable (or it takes a while to learn it and be able to predict.) The good news is I’ll be giving it another try soon in cone 6 electric. Swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΌ to see what it looked like pre-firing. . . . #ceramics #mug #pottery #muglife #porcelain #cone10 #saltfired #monstera #monsteraleaf #coffeemug #muglife #mugshot #tea #handmade

Well, I got some unexpected results from the salt firing (which is kind of the nature of atmospheric firings) but I’m really enjoying how this weathered beachy set came out. Do you like them? These are sold, but I’ll have some other mugs available in the next week... 🀞🏼 . . . #handmadeincolorado #muglife #ceramics #porcelain #sgraffito #mugshot #saltfired #atmosphericfiring #freshfromthekiln #freshpot #inspiredbynature #inspiredbythesea

Combining 3d printing and clay to make a plaster mold. At this point in the process, I feel that what I have created is an elephant propelling himself into space with his poop.

I unloaded a very packed #saltkiln today with Cris Conklin. Most of the work will be headed to #cheesmanparkartfestival this weekend in Denver. πŸ“¦ Lots of packing and set up tomorrow. I've been building garden totem sculptures all afternoon and into the evening for the show. Also new Birdvases. Very pretty new mugs & Some new work I've never shown anywhere. πŸ”₯ . See you there . . . #localart #show #denverco #saltfired #porcelain # #boulderartist #contemporaryceramics #artofthetable #artforthegarden #artforthehome #useyourart
