3. Why can't I take my creation home today?
After your masterpiece is finished we need to allow it to completely dry for 24 hours. Once dry, we dip it into a clear glaze. This clear glaze will make the item nice and shiny and, if it's a kitchen item, make it safe for use with food. After it's glazed it requires another 24 hours to dry. Once dry it waits it's turn to be fitted into the kiln where it'll be fired for 24 hours at a temperature of approximately 2000 degrees! When this process is finally done we have to empty the kiln and de-stilt the bottom of each piece. It then waits patiently for you to come pick it up and proudly bring it home.
