This mask is sculpted out of stoneware clay. As the clay mask is drying some clean up takes place. Clean up can take a few minutes or several hours. Many days later when the mask is thoroughly dry it is Bisque fired. This takes about 13 hours and another day before the kiln can be opened. If it makes it through this firing without blowing up, the next step is to apply the glazes, three coats to be exact. Then back into the kiln for the really hot firing (2232 degrees). This firing is only 6-8 hours and again another impatient day of waiting until the kiln is cool enough to open. Sometimes there are pieces that come out as you hoped and then some come out disappointing. The sad ones can sometimes be salvaged by another application of glazes or oxides and high fired again....hoping for the best. So you see, considering the time from start to finish, we're talking 7+ days and a lot of electricity. Phew, but we clay crazy people love to play in the mud.
