1st official Kiln firing

Well after quite a few experience sessions at Spire Pottery it was time at last to glaze fire the work. With a little apprehension we filled up the kiln with our client work and started the kiln. After the usual wait till everything cooled down it was time to open the kiln. For our first official firing it when pretty well. All the work survived and most of the glazing was fine. Think we need to tweak our clear glaze and blue a little. Our test tile gave us some great results and helped decide on a range of glazes we will be continuing with. All in all a good firing.

Now to make more stuff.

New Courses

For the summer we have available new 1 month pottery short courses. These are 4 sessions designed for those used to handling clay to make that special gift. These sessions will be loosely guided along this summers theme of the sea side. Get in touch for more details.

New Logo finished

After much work the Spire Pottery logo is finished. We hope you like it as much as we do. It is now live on our social media and this web site. We have other special variations waiting for the right club or course when we are more established so plenty to look forward to.
