after unpack a kiln

wash the pieces and  sand down excess bits on the bottom with a wetstone

 dip them into water-repellant and wipe it off

and leave them to dry one or two days
 I never sell my functional wares without doing these processes.

 and now I'm shooting newly finished pieces

焼きあがった作品は、洗って、底の余計な部分を砥石で整えて、
撥水剤につけて、拭いて、1,2日乾かします。
この過程なしでは、絶対に作品を売らないようにしていますんですよっ。
で、今写真とっとります。

  1. What is this water-repellant thing and why do you have to do it? They are glazed anyways, arent they?

  2. You don't have to if you use porcelain and dark colour glaze or glassy glaze on your work.

    It's just my functional ware is mostly matt glazed stoneware, so it tends to be stained easily with tea and food and also the crackle line of the glaze would stand out as the time of being used.
    I like this kind of change that will happen to what I use but there's the people who don't like that sort of change...

    So it's just for protection from stain but it will not last permanently.
