How are the soap dishes made?
Our soap dishes are all different since each and every one is hand rolled and individually cut from the clay. Once the soap dish is cut from the clay we place it into a simple mold we found at the dollar store that was just the right size to cradle our wet clay.
Moses loves to take the wooden cut outs of various critters, flowers, and words and press them into the wet clay. Over the next few days the clay is allowed to dry slowly. Each dish is then wiped down, trimmed, signed, and dated.
The dry dish will be fired to 1800 degrees. After this first bisk firing the hardened soap dish is ready to have its bottom waxed. Each soap dish that has an image or stamp on it will have to be individually hand painted with colorful glazes and then submerged into the clear glaze bucket. After the dish is glazed, it will be loaded back into the kiln for a glaze firing of 2200 degrees. A few days later, we open the kiln and have beautifully glazed soap dishes that Miss Jenny sells with her soaps.
