for ceramics to dry...
Then we have to wait until clay
is completely dry before we can proceed to first firing. Time needed
depends on the size of the ceramic, on the thickness of clay, on room temperature and
hummidity. You can realize that it takes less time during summer time
(about a week). In winter time
it may take even more than a month for some big pieces.
the photos to the left, ceramics with brown colour are made in the same
day and are still very wet. These which appear with more gray colour are almost
dry and ready to
put in the kiln. Ceramics in the lower shelf are still wet (that's why they
appear more gray-brown as clay contains more water).
