Slab Boxes

I've made several slab pieces, particularly the slab boxes. I really enjoy the process of both the slab work and the carving.

Hi my name is Clare and i was wondering how you made your slab pot with the door on it. I was wondering if you used wire onthe door and did you put the door on before or after you fired it

Hi, Clare. I did use wire on the door after both pieces were glazed and fired. Although they do make a wire that will withstand the temperature of the kiln, if I tried to wire the door on before firing the glaze would melt the two pieces together and it would be permanently fixed - open or shut depending on how it was when firing.
Each of the boxes with lids also open and close using wire.
