    The popcorn is a fantastic idea. I hate packing peanuts, because they get everywhere and are tough to dispose of. The popcorn, could just be thrown on the lawn, and the birds would take care of it. I wouldn't eat it, because "Ew Air Pop.."

    That was the original idea. . throw it on the lawn. However, it seems lots of folks see a box of popcorn and party! From what I hear.

    Today is the first real rain we've had for about 6 weeks. Annoying, because I had lots of cycling learners, that have all postponed. Not really complaining, the garden pots need the rain.

    very dangerous with such a large kiln-the heat will be extreme when you open the door. I think its a bad idea

Totally meant to do some volumetric blending but been distracted talking to local coffee roasters. Managed to get some green beans from them to try pan roasting.

waiting for my kiln to cool..... glaze firing with my first tiles!!

You know it is the end of the semester when the shelves you are using to re-load the kiln are still warm from the previous firing. Proof that a little procrastination goes a long way :)

the smoke from the Yucatan is gone with a strong cool front from the north. Perfect weather to finish all my raku pieces.

    Thanks guys! Application is in. I did the spring show that the same organizer runs, and I was pleased with the results. The Christmas version has twice the attendance though...hence the nerves.

Finally hooking my kiln up this weekend. Been a rough couple weeks, but hot-place or high water, I`m cranking out yarn bowls like a madrodent.

Faced a new learning curve for my airmen. Need thicker glaze.

Well, mixing all the different clays together worked for the pit fired bowls. I decided to make a fiber tempered vessel and didn't remember how to add Spanish Moss to clay, so I threw 8 lbs. clay on top of a mass of moss...Did not work...So I cut the Spanish Moss into 4 inch sections and wedged that in bit by bit. That worked, so I added moss until I got tired adding moss. Now all there is to do is to fire it next week.
