Unpacking the kiln

After waiting a day and a half for the kiln to cool down,

 the artists were anxious to dismantle the door and see the results.

The unusual colors on the tea pot in the foreground are a result of the ash glaze.

The owl jar by Kang Proeung is a combination of porcelain clay on the bird's breast and darker sculpture clay.

 The glaze is clear. The combination of clay and porcelain is a technical tour de force.

This pedastal jar by Kang Proeung is also a combination of porcelain on the top and sculpture clay on the body, with clear glaze.

Yary Livan created this piece in homage to his mother; it represents the work women do to raise their children well.
