I turned this toad home on my pottery wheel like I would a bowl. The following day I trimmed the top of the toad's home to round it off. Then I cut out the doorway. Taking more stoneware clay I formed the frog or toad and stuck it on the top. The frog was hand painted with my ceramic underglaze paint.
I all of my pottery is slowly dried under plastic on my drying shelf for a couple of weeks. They are then fired (cooked) in an electric kiln for several hours to about 2300 degrees. I painted two coats of clear glaze on the frog and three coats of the variegated blue glaze on the home. Then it is fired at around 2900 to melt the glaze into my toad hole.
I enjoy making my pottery in my basement studio in central Canada not far from Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes.
