Bisque Bowls

By bisque, I don't mean a soup.

Bisque is the first stage of firing clay. In the kiln, bone dry (and very brittle) clay is fired at the lowest temperature. The end product allows for the water in glaze to be soaked up and to stick to the piece. After glaze is applied, the bisqueware is fired at a higher temperature where the glaze melts and the piece is finalized.
Stay tuned to see what these bowls will look like!
