I’m Back! + The Pottery Yurt

Hi everyone!

I’m back!

I haven’t posted in so long because this year has been very busy, but I really want to start posting here again. I have so many photos I can’t wait to share!

Today I’ll be showing you a co-op art studio near me. ย They have a yurt pottery wheel studio, which can be very crowded at times!

Today I will be taking you through the complex process of pottery wheel!

The pot is thrown on the wheel.

Then the pots are fired for the first time.

Off to the glaze yurt.

Next, the pots are dipped in buckets of specially made glaze.

The glaze dries on the pots on the holding shelf.

The pots are fired at over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit in the kilns.

After cleaning the pottery yurt for the next artists, the process is finished.

While it seems like it should be a quick and easy process, making a single pot can take months of hard work.

Which photo is your favorite? Have you tried a pottery wheel?

Thanks for reading!
