3 STATES OF THE SPONGE HOLDER

STAGESĀ  I GO THROUGH WHEN MAKING A SPONGE HOLDER:

1) THROWING ON THE WHEEL

2) LETTING IT DRY TO LEATHER HARD STATE

3) TRIMMING AND SLICING THE SLOT ( CARVING OR CHATTERING IS ALSO DONE HERE)

4) GLAZES ARE APPLIED

5) FIRING BETWEEN 2201 & 2245 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT IN THE KILN

6) REMOVING FROM THE KILN WITH BIG LEATHER GLOVES IN CASE THEY ARE TOO HOT TO HANDLE.
