AMAZING GLAZE – HOW FUN IT IS
by Michael Webb

About twenty years ago, when I was a young school boy, I would spend a
month each summer with my grandparents out in the country. One of the
highlights of each visit was going to the ceramic shop and picking out
my item to paint.

One year I painted a black and white bulldog “piggy” bank. Another
year I painted a coffee mug to give to my mom, but when my grandfather
sneezed I was startled and dropped it.

Do-it-yourself ceramic shops are once again in vogue and are sprouting
up all over the place. There are at least six within a 45 minute
driving distance from our house.

A while back Athena and I had a date night at Amazing Glaze. We
purchased a teapot and a creamer. The staff sat us down, gave us some
brief instructions, showed us where the paints were and then let us go
wild with our brushes.

We painted the teapot and creamer for a couple of hours and when we
finished we left them there to be fired (that’s what creates the
shiny, porcelain-like finish). The date was only slightly more
expensive that going to the movies, but we could talk with each other
while we worked on our projects and we have a meaningful and practical
keepsake from our evening out.

Now we have to go back to paint a sugar bowl to finish our set.
