Today was such a good day! I unloaded the kiln and was happy to see that the reduction went well. Saturday when I was firing a storm came in, which always makes me nervous. Not because of thunder and lightning but because of the barometric pressure and the wind messing with my venturi burners!
Here is a fun stack of bowls, some of which will be sent to their new home in Hilton Head, South Carolina. I finished glazing another load today that will find its new home in East Lansing, Michigan. Before I fire the kiln again tomorrow, Buster wanted to make sure all the pots were out.
Buster jumped up there, I didn’t set him in there. He’s so funny. I’m off from teaching these next two weeks. It’s great not to have to plan Tuesday around teaching. It’s going to be a productive week. Ugh. I found the first tick of the season on my arm today. It hadn’t embedded, but I got rid of the little sucker before it had a feast on one of the pets. Watch out. Speaking of insects the sgraffito design on this plate was inspired by fly eyes.
