ur rack is filling up with bowls for this fall’s Bouja! It has been so much fun making bowls from the clay from the farm. The color difference you see in the bowls on the rack is because the pink ones on top have been bisque-fired. A bisque firing is a lower temperature firing to harden the bowls before they are dipped in a glaze. The bowls that look grey are dry but yet to be fired.
Having discovered clay at the farm feels like the place has found it’s breath, with clay as its oxygen. The small initial holes we dug in the earth are like a newborn’s first yowl, the clay-processing equipment Dom and I have been building it’s lungs, and the bouja bowls being made from the clay are what is being exhaled.
