A belated happy holidays and some goodbye news for this blog...

It's been a while!  We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

I haven't posted in over a month I believe.  With a new year I've decided to make a big leap and try out a new look and a new blog site.  We have already imported all of our previous posts into the WordPress blog, so you will still have access to all of our content from the past 2 years!!!  I will leave the blogger site up, but will most likely post everything on our new site.  I've loved blogger.  I try to remember how frustrated I got with it at first, so as not to get too frustrated at the WordPress site.  After you learn how to use blogger it's wonderful.  I will miss it immensely.  I feel it's time to step out of the comfort zone & learn some new skills.  And if you know me, you know I do almost everything backwards.

There are a few reasons for this change.  WordPress is going to be hard for me to learn... but I'm hoping you all bear with me... because in the long run we have more control over the layout and offerings of the site.  We are mainly going to focus on getting an eCommerce section so you can purchase directly from us.  We aren't sure how this will all play out yet, but we're hoping it will be seamless.

So... this will be my last post on the blogger blog, and a new beginning for our wordpress blog.  Please subscribe to our feed at  If you need help doing so, just drop me an email at

It's Alive!!!

Last Saturday, after a month of waiting for a new propane regulator and parts for our chimney, we had our first firing. We decided that the first firing should be a bisque. Bisque firing hardens the pottery, but leaves it still able to absorb water. This allows you to handle the pottery more easily when dipping into our glazes.

  We were all a little nervous that the kiln would perform as we hoped it would, but soon after lighting the burners all of our fears melted away. There was still a little water in the arch, but other than a little steam, it didn't cause much trouble. 

The firing ended with both top and bottom dead even and plenty of propane pressure in reserve. With any luck our first glaze firing will go just as well.

Stay tuned for photos of the next firing and enjoy some photos of the inaugural run
