  1. I am finally back in the studio, hand- building. It is 23 degrees and I am snowed in. I won't get back to the wheel until spring.

      same here but thinking about moving my wheel back into the basement today from its outdoor shed- not even my little gas heater can keep up to this cold!

      How do work with frozen clay? Do you store it in the house or do you have to thaw it out for a day or 3 before you work with it?

      I store it in the house. Using three heaters in the basement this morning. I will only run out to the shed if I forgot a tool or something. 

  2. Yesterday on a maybe 8" diameter sphere I outlined my family, from the back, in black underglaze. I'll deliver it to the kiln tomorrow, and if it doesn't crack, I will need to decide what we five will all be looking at. I am thinking maybe Haystack Rock. It will be a centerpiece on a lazy Susan.

  3. Last night was the first time I have found myself working in the studio in the middle of the night, up out of bed at midnight and impatient to try something.  After two hours I was back in bed. Lucky today isn't a teaching day!

      I'm the age where night work is not often other than firing gas kilns or turning up shop heater.Working past 8 is rare in studio this days.I just like to get it all done earlier. I also do not have old mans disease meaning I can sleep in if needed.

      I'm no spring chicken either, Mark. Normally I am the poster child for early to bed and early to rise.

      I am the same age as Mark and I still get up in the middle of the night and start a kiln.  I have manual kilns so I am the computer that has to turn them on.   I am also good at sleeping.    Denice

  4. Happy Father's Day, Dads.  May you enjoy your favorite beverage out of a fine mug.

  5. This morning did a quick acrylic painting of a reclining rhino (a first for me), to prepare my eye to make a large wall tile with shallow relief of a rhino.

  6. I threw my first bowl today on my new Pacifica wheel and my first ever porcelain bowl. :)
