The making of ceramic has too many stages.
First clay gets its form, the object is let to dry a few days, then imperfections are retouched and it goes into the kiln. It is fired at 1000 degree Celcius (1900 Fahrenheit). After first firing it is ready to glaze. After the glaze has dried it is fired again at 1050 degree Celcius (1920 Fahrenheit). After another 19-20 hours of firing and cooling it is ready.

How to choose the right engagement gift for the couple

Choosing the right engagement gift for a couple can be a thoughtful gesture to celebrate their special moment. Here are some steps to help you choose the perfect engagement gift:

  1. Consider the couple’s interests – Think about the couple’s hobbies, passions, and shared interests. This can give you ideas for a gift that aligns with their preferences and shows that you understand their personalities.

  2. Personalized gifts – Opt for personalized gifts that add a unique touch. Engraved items like photo frames, champagne flutes, or jewelry with their names or initials can be meaningful and memorable.

  3. Practicality – Consider practical gifts that the couple can use in their new journey together. This could be kitchen appliances, home decor items, or even a gift card for their favorite store. Practical gifts show that you are thinking about their needs and can be helpful as they start their life together.

  4. Experiences – Instead of a physical gift, you can consider giving them an experience they can enjoy as a couple. This could be tickets to a concert, a weekend getaway, or a couples’ spa day. Experiences can create lasting memories and allow the couple to celebrate their engagement in a unique way.

  5. Gift registry – Check if the couple has created a gift registry. This can provide you with a list of items they specifically want or need, making your gift selection easier. Gift registries are often available at various stores or online platforms.

  6. Budget – Consider your budget when choosing an engagement gift. There’s no need to overspend; the thought and effort you put into selecting the gift are more important than its monetary value.

  7. Presentation – Pay attention to the presentation of the gift. Use attractive wrapping paper or a gift box, and include a heartfelt note or card to express your congratulations and well wishes.

Remember, the most important aspect of an engagement gift is the thought and effort you put into selecting something meaningful for the couple. It’s a symbol of your support and celebration of their love and commitment to each other.
