Mercy wants to make a pot.
Mercy begins making a base for her pot.
A base is essential to make a pot because it sets up the whole pot.
Mercy has to let it sit out over night to dry. However, if she needed to keep it ready to mold the next day she would wrap it up in a wet cloth & put it in a zip-lock bag. However, since she is letting it dry she sets it out on a tray to dry for the next two weeks. Then, it may go through the kiln.
Finally, Mercy's pot is has gone through green ware and bisque ware and is now going to be glazed! However, before it is glazed it must be rinsed under water to take off any dust collected from the clay!
Mercy begins glazing her pot. She chooses many colors for her pot! She uses the colors to create effects on the pot so that it appears carved but really isn't! Now it is ready for the kiln. When it is put in the kiln it is glaze fire at 05-06/1915 degrees farenheit.
Now the pot is out of the kiln and is considered glaze ware. Mercy's pot is finally complete!
