Chris Long  I make pottery for a living and play drums in a band called Hikes. Living and working in Austin, Texas. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼Documentary about all this stuff in link

Playing shows has always been a defining factor of my life, and it's been a real weird year having that part of my world be absent. I'm so thankful and excited that we get to continue playing shows and making music, and that the terrible shit that happened at the end of last year wasn't the end of the story for Hikes. This band means the fucking world to me and I know that finally being back on stage with my best friends is gonna make my life make sense again.
So much love.
Hope to see y'all next Saturday. Barracuda ,7/21.

Glaze test on this lil pipe. What do y'all think?

I threw 50ish pieces on Tuesday, dried/decorated/glazed them yesterday, and I just started the kiln today. By far the quickest I've ever gotten pieces thru the process. Thank you Austin summer for drying my pieces quickly. This weekend you can find me at @socofarmersmarketatx on Saturday and @originalaustinflea on Sunday at @radiocoffeeandbeer. I'll have lots of new work with me.
Much love. •

So out of the 10ish glazes I've made and tested so far, this is the first that I've made a 10,000g (5 gallon) batch of. Really digging how it works with this stoneware clay. I'm slowly re-defining my body of work and it feels good and scary and refreshing.

Pulled so many incense burners outta the kiln the other day. This is my first step into building my new body of work firing at cone 5/6. Pretty stoked with the results so far. I have loads of new glazes I'm testing right now, but none of them are quite ready for production yet. I'll be set up at the south congress farmers market tomorrow if you need any pots! Hope yr doin well :):):)

Testing out a bunch of new glazes to see how they work with the topo lines. I've been learning a lot about glaze chemistry lately and it's been blowing my mind. Stay tuned for the results :):):)
