Cold front is here. Weather is beautiful with the highs in the lower 80s. Raku today and tomorrow.
Dumping rain today 2+ inches so far this morning. Hoping for a good raku firing day on Friday.
Made my first sale on Etsy :D feels good.

Just spent the day spiffing up the website. I'd appreciate any pm's with suggestions or comments. (I know the Facebook link is funky, but it's bedtime)
'week # 2 of throwing, did better. not near as many falls due to weak bases and/or weak lower walls.. Our pulling is getting better but still a challenge for us.. we made 20 pots on saturday with decent results for being rookies, alot to learn...
