Can I put my new sculpture outside?
That depends! If you live in a moderate climate, your ceramic sculpture will survive normal weather fluctuations without a problem. If you live in a climate where the temperature drops below freezing, you will need to bring your sculpture indoors. Clay is porous and if absorbed water freezes in the clay, it will expand and crack or break the clay. If your sculpture gets pooled water in it from sprinklers or rain, it is a good idea to dump out that water occasionally. I have had sculptures outside for years with out any damage, but please be aware that while ceramics is a sturdy material, it can crack, chip or break easily if it is bumped or knocked into. If you would like to keep your piece outside, make sure to place it in a low traffic area.
How do I clean my sculpture?
If you’ve got dust, spider webs or other debris built up on your sculpture, you can easily remove it by placing the piece under running water and then letting it dry on a towel before placing back in your display area. If you need to get into a tight spot, a dry paint brush can gently remove any debris from cracks.
What are these little marks on the bottom of my piece?
When ceramics goes through the glaze firing in the kiln, the glaze can’t touch the shelf or walls of the kiln because it will fuse to it, so any work that is glazed on all sides will sit on high temperature wire stilts in the kiln. When the stilts are removed sometimes they will leave a mark on the glaze that needs to be ground down and smoothed. Usually these marks are in as hidden a spot as possible, sometimes they are more noticeable but they are a natural part of the firing process.
