Why not make a beer stein?! Especially if someone asks, like the nice folks at Claymakers, for their upcoming Steinzeugkrug Exhibition! So I made a new handle mold (this image is of me removing the plasticine prototype): And then whipped out a test stein (above), which is in the glaze kiln right now. Tomorrow will be like Christmas...in July! (Right now my studio feels like a sauna though). Looking forward to things cooling off tomorrow when I pull this guy out of the kiln. Guess I'll have to really put it to the test with a nice cold beer!
