On a Roll - More Pottery

I am on a roll. It takes 5-6 weeks to create a piece. First the piece is thrown and the initial shape is formed. It is then kept under plastic for a week until it is leather hard. The piece is then flipped and the "foot" is trimmed. After drying, yet another week, the piece is put into the bisque firing. The next week it is ready to be glazed and then fired again (at a very high temperature, to melt the glaze onto the ceramic.
