  1. Hello there,

     

    I'm very new into Pottery and don't know much about glazes yet, well, don't know much about a lot to do with Pottery, to be honest. I've mainly worked with clay during art school for anatomical sculpture and recently acquired a kiln from a cousin. I have never fired a kiln before, but feel comfortable with the greenware (I thiiink that's unfired clay, right?) I'm not even sure of the model yet. I have 2 questions (to start with) for you:

     

    *Can you recommend a good book or resource (video, websites, etc) to help me, an absolute and complete beginner, learn how to safely work a kiln and find more info on glaze and glazing techniques? I am most drawn to Japanese Pottery styles, if that helps filter at all. :)

     

    *how long will it take to get good enough to make pottery like the attached images? I'm a very fast learner and am able to dedicate a large majority of time to this.

     

    I appreciate any and all assistance, and thank you for accepting me into the community!

     

    Cheers!
