01. Credit Card Process 02. Sales Tax License

01. Credit Card Process     02. Sales Tax License
The outdoor sculpture show was held in Colorado in August. I began the following preparation about a month in advance.

1. Credit Card Process
A Colorado resident said Verizon would cover the area the best. I purchased an used smartphone and decided to get a one-month prepaid coverage a week prior to my departure. Two people recommended Square to process credit card transactions. I registered with the company, received a reader, and practiced processing with my own credit card.

*** Swiping a credit card through a Square reader can be tricky. I strongly recommend you practice with it. ***

2. Special Event Sales Tax License
I took care of the necessary paperwork in advance. Neither the city nor the state required the special event participant to carry the sales tax license with him/her at the time of the event, as long as he/she had a copy of the application forms.

*** The event organizer gave us wrong information about the sales taxes, and it was confusing. I found it was the best to contact the appropriate revenue department for questions. ***

Figural Raku Sculpture Combined
The sculpture turned out well overall. A couple pf the glazes didn't reduce as much as I would have like, so the color is a bit off in spots. However, nothing broke, or even cracked during either firing....Must have been the expertise of the artist...

Zen practice/6/18/14.
I ve been away from wheel for a few weeks. Struggled with a few bowls a few days ago. I needed to go back and "practice". The first five were a struggle, some were a fight. I struggled with centering, I crashed a few on purpose, I crashed a few due to bad technique. Cylinders 6 - 17 found the zone they .........flowed.....they just. Happened!!

ok before your say craft or more "duckies and chickens" let me tell you about this.
Started as an exersize in clay shrinkage and designing to fit.
As we know, clays have different shrinkage numbers and temp certainly has an effect on that shrinkage.
The experiment started with just going by the shinkage numbers given with the clay body. I soon discovered that there is some deviation to that number (they should give the average shrinkage and an observed deviation). But I digress.
I liked the way they looked and they were different. So......
I measure the appropriate dimensions on the found glass objects, interesting things from thrift stores. I then throw a base and a lid, based on the glass dimension, plus the published shrinkage, plus a fudge factor that you have to determine with the clay you are using.
I bisque, the glaze, fire to cone 5 (stoneware). Usually now, I get a pretty good fit. Sometime the lid is a little big or small though. if I like the way the lid looks, I'll grind or add cork or foam filler.
I found that folk like and actually buy these. If you want more info, shoot me an emai.

This pot was bisque fired, soaked in milk, then heated to achieve the desired color. It is watertight.
