When you work hard people take notice... Because we work REALLY hard on all of our orders, occasionally we hear back from our customers as they 'take notice' of their handmade stoneware mugs. Whether it is in the shape of a hand written card, letter, emails, or pictures, these notes are a joy to receive. We recently received one such email from a wonderful customer in Vermont that first contacted us in May, 'visionkeeper' of Peace of Mind Emporium Julie White RN: "We are Vermont's Premier Stress Reduction Store and Wellness Center created by Nurses. Our name, Peace of Mind Emporium, and lovely buildings and grounds, draw people in who are looking for an oasis from their stress - filled lives. They often remark that they want to take a piece of Peace of Mind home with them after visiting in our store..."

Spring is finally in the air and I had a few minutes this morning to take pictures of the firing that took place yesterday. We fire the kiln 4-5 days a week, each glaze firing heats the stoneware inside up to about 2350º F and takes 24 hours to heat up and cool down. Like most commercial and handmade pottery we have 2 firings; bisque, and glaze. The bisque firing is the first and heats the our handmade stoneware up to 1600º F over the course of 12 hours. I'll take some pictures of the difference in air dry, bisque, glazed and then glaze fired in the next report. Now for the mug shots:
