Wet Sanding

I am wet sanding today.  This is probably the messiest part of working in the clay for me.  Just after the pieces are dry to the touch, I use a damp sponge and rub off the sharp edges or little clay clumps...pretty them up a bit before the bisque fire.  After the bisque fire, they are so much harder to fine tune, so I do it now.  Here are some things I'm working on.  I still have a few things in the white stoneware to work up.

These are just a few of the pieces I have done.  The little kiln can be loaded with lots of these pieces, but after they are glazed, I have to be careful to have room between each piece because the glaze will stick to whatever it touches.  

Okay, I better get back to work, hope you all have a good day, and as always...

take care and thanks for stopping by!
