This is where I’ve been sat the last couple of days, waxing the bottoms of hundreds of pots so they’re ready for glazing.
I wish the wax prevented any glaze from settling on the base as it would mean I’d spend a lot less time cleaning the pots up with a damp sponge after they’ve been dunked in glaze, but alas. On the sit some jars, which need the base, rim and the lids underside waxed, anywhere I want exposed clay to be gets a layer of wax, so these are maybe the pots that take longest at this stage. That being said, it only takes a couple of hours to brush on the wax emulsion on a few hundred pieces, vessels like mugs or beakers take only a few seconds, such as in the short video clip in the second part of this post.
The way the clay is finished makes a big difference to how the wax goes on. Very burnished and smooth areas are lovely to brush over, whereas rough areas leave a specked wash of wax, either way, with all the pots done I can begin what is quite a colossal amount of glazing. If, in the future, I have apprentices or interns, I hope they like glazing, as they’ll be doing a lot of it.
I don’t mind the process, but compared to the many other steps of the process it’s by far the least enjoyable. That’s my fault though, if I were to be more expressive, splashing layers of slips and glazes over of course it would be more fun, but as I want even, clean and highly finished surfaces it becomes a monotonous test of will. I just put on music or podcasts or audiobooks and just dip pots, clean them up and repeat. Of course there are parts that need attention, such as checking sure the glazes are the right viscosity for dipping, carefully fettling away glaze on foot-rings but otherwise it’s work I can sort of switch off to.
This plain cap toe oxford was made on @springline.lasts with calf leather from @tanneriedupuy. Features include a hand welted construction, seamless heels, sturdy leather insoles, full grain leather stiffeners and veg tanned baby calf lining. The @jr_1871 J. Rendenbach outsoles are hand stitched with a hidden channel and finished in a 'burned wood' patina. Polished lightly with @saphir_medailledor. A construction post is available on my blog (link in bio). There is much to improve, but this is by far my best work yet.
This is how I often feel about the Craft as well. After having studied and practiced it for many years now, I have come to a point where the outer sYmbols and tools matter less to me, but the eternal truths behind them even more. #mothman#wicca#craft#magic

Happy New Year everyone! Haven’t posted for a while. Enjoying the holidays. Back to work and highlighting this beautiful Democratic Chair made by Jon @tasforestrecovery for the collection at the Guild. If you are unfamiliar with the Democratic Chair it was developed by Curtis Buchanan in Tennessee a few years back. His aim was to make this chair accessible to as many people as possible with as few tools as possible. No lathe just a few simple hand tools. Struck gold with this one I think. We are running a class this year on this chair. June 18th to 21st. 4 days and under $1000. Please check the website if you are interested. Thank you so much Jon. Beautiful job once again. #woodwork#madeinmelbourne#handmade
