Worst Thing About Creating Ceramics

I take a ceramics class and I love it, but here’s some of the worst things about it.

1
Your project blows up in the kilm

It doesn’t matter how hard you work on your project, it will blow up if it’s heavy or has a lot of airpockets. It will blow up. I built a mushroom fairy house and it blew up. I was so pist. – RadioHead03

2
Your clay gets hard

It’s awful. The worse part is, if there’s not enough soft clay left, you have to revive your clay. – RadioHead03

3
The sharp objects stuck on your piece

Sometimes if your project gets fired, some sharp debris gets stuck on your piece. And it could cut you. I remember when I made a snail and not knowing a piece of another project cut my thumb really bad. – RadioHead03

4
Wedging clay

The process is annoying, especially if your clay has a crap ton of airpockets. – RadioHead03

5
Airpockets in your clay

Every time I see one, I always sigh. – RadioHead03

6
Your project gets bone dry

Basically, if you leave your project out without anything covering it, it will go bone dry and fall apart. I made a Tech Deck skatepark out of clay and I did a good job on it. I left it out to dry, not knowing I left it out for too long. Luckily I made a half pipe instead. – RadioHead03

7
The smell of slip

When you make new slip, it smells like *ss. It’s horrible! – RadioHead03

8
The glaze goes dry

Sometimes, glaze goes dry and you can’t use that color anymore. – RadioHead03

9
Reviving clay

This is a very annoying process. You have to stick the hard clay in the water and wedge it to get the softness. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. – RadioHead03

10
A piece of your project breaks off

Sometimes after your project is fired, be careful, sometimes a small piece could break off. – RadioHead03
