Alex Macias' Auction Bowl

Updated: Apr 8, 2020

  • Medium for your bowl:

Cone 6 Ceramics

  • What was your process when you created this bowl:

This bowl was thrown on the wheel using a mid-range clay body dug from Minnesota. It then went through a drying process in which it became a slightly firmer consistency known as "leather hard." From there, the piece was trimmed, a process in which I'm able to refine the shape. Next it was dried, fired, then prepped for glaze. To achieve the finish on the piece, a multitude of glazes were combined and the piece was fired to Cone 6 with a slow cool.

  • What inspired you to donate your bowl to Empty Bowls McKinney?

I have been donating to Empty Bowls since 2012, and enjoy doing it as a form of community outreach. 

  • Fun fact:

I named my business,  "All Fired Up" when I first started it at the age of 14.
