Bisqued Bowls Ready to Glaze
These speckled and ribbed bowls, and short mugs have been bisqued in the electric kiln. Bisqueware is clay that has been fired at a relatively low kiln fire, between cones 05-04 (approximately 1870-1970 degrees fahrenheit ). Bisquing clay is the first fire in twice-fired ceramics and allows for easier glazing and increased durability.
The small speckled bowls are a commission for a plant shop in Austin and will be used for succulents and air plants. The shorties will be perfect espresso or tea, and the medium-sized bowls are sized for soups, cereals, and smoothie bowls. The largest of the bowls will plate a salad nicely, or function as a serving bowl for sides. Check in later for an update on the glazing process.
