Vesuvius has erupted!

A pot made of Earthenware clay  was by mistake fired in the gas kiln. The resulting lava flow damaged other people’s work and the kiln shelves. The member whose pot it was is devastated at the damage done and wants to apologise to everyone who lost their work.


The clay was not one that WSP sell. It would be sensible if members use clay supplied by WSP or recommended by their tutors. If members want to try out clays bought ‘out of house’ please ensure that test tiles are made and fired at all temperatures before making anything else.

Our marvellous Tuesday Technician spent almost her entire allotted time cleaning the kiln and shelves.

This is all put in perspective when compared to the people of Hawaii who thought they going suffer a missile attack after someone pressed the wrong button!
