Female: This is just fishing wire and I’ve put two little balls of it so I don’t loose the actual wire. You’re going to slide it under the piece, just like that and you’re going to take your fingers and just lift it up.
Female: And there you go.
Female: I’m going near you right now because I’m scared that I’m going to miss it up.
Female: There you go and you have the cup and as you can see I was doing it a little larger than this one because when it dries it just shrink.
Female: So this is a dried, let’s say at 24 hours.
Female: Okay it’s dried and I’ve carve the little feet which I used with one on this tools and what I do is I just take it and I carve and I made my little feet. So very simple and sometimes I put a little—you know just to add a little detail. And if you noticed on some of my mugs and I’ll grab one my mugs, I have one here just that’s it. If you look at my little mugs, I have little faces and I have little handles too. I make cups but I also made some mugs.
Female: That’s interesting I like to have that. So did little details and I think this is what makes it when you know it’s?
Female: Its hand made and it’s just an art. I mean it’s not just the cup but—
Female: You know there’s somebody that actually somebody in that
Female: So it’s the time to doing and that’s one makes this a lot. I prefer to drink coffee in this.
Female: Me too. This is how it can looks like. There are bigger ones or smaller ones, there are the other ones have don’t covers on the top that you load by pulling out the little compartments here. But generally, you put your pieces in and when your pieces are completely dried, you put them in a kiln and you go through a first firing which is called a brisk and what happen is that the fire—the piece gets half fired I guess like half a bit. Okay, so which is how I feel most of the time?
Female: And then we eat it.
Female: So the clay I’m using gets fired at about 2200 degrees maximum and that’s one it’s fully fired. But during the first firing you just want to partially fire it, so it only gets fire to like 1000 degrees.
