Making pottery is much safer in the 21st century. From making kilns safer and easier to operate, to having better ventilation through technology, and even taking the lead out of Glazes.
What if an air pocket gets trapped in your clay and you don’t know it? Will the kiln get damaged? Will the pottery crack or break? These are important questions
When you work with clay for the first time, you will want to know what to wear. You want to be properly dressed and comfortable, and you don’t want to ruin your clothes. Although many clays wash right out, the darker clays can stain.
