. . .or something like that!
I decided to make some ornaments this year: snowflakes, mittens and hearts. I had fun rolling out the clay and cutting out various shapes with cookie cutters. I bisque fired the ornaments in preparation for glazing. After dipping the very first snowflake into the glaze, I had a face-palm moment. I realized I did not think this whole process through to the very end! How was I going to fire the ornaments after glazing both sides without the ornaments sticking to the kiln shelf?
I did desperate search on the interwebtubes. I found out that I am not the only one who had this face-palm moment in the middle of creativity. I also learned that this lovely little gadget, pictured below, will solve my problem of firing ornaments that have been glazed on both sides.
While necessity may be the mother of invention, I say necessity can be the mother of resourcefulness and internet purchasing!
Now, off to load the kiln!
