I turned the base of this toad home on my pottery wheel without a bottom. I rolled out more stoneware clay and cut out a round domed shape for the lid, which I put on with slip-clay. The following day, when it had firmed up I cut out a door.

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 three coats of yellow low fire glaze and then the red stripes and dots on this mushroom shaped toad hole. 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.
