I unloaded a load of bisqueware from the kiln today and realized my kiln shelves are in need of some TLC. Kiln wash is great stuff, but still doesn’t take the place of regular shelf care. Cleaning shelves has to be my least favorite task in creating pottery. But’s its gotta be done. So I scraped the old kiln wash (along with countless glaze spatters) off and applied a nice new coat of kiln wash to the shelves. They look so great all cleaned and newly protected. If only it would last. Shortly, I’ll have a new batch of glaze spatters. Experimenting with glazes is fun, but sometimes it’s the shelves that pay the price. Or is it me since I’m really the one that will have to clean them ultimately anyway? Hmmm.
