Pres

Load of Chalice and paten glaze out last night, popping popcorn and mailing out 5. kiln also had 20+ mugs and some medium sized bowls. I am trying the spray on route with the hazelnut, it was not perfect, but much better than most loads with it so far.

For once, I don't feel like I was hit by a truck on Monday morning! Let's see if I can motivate myself to get the necessary cleaning done to swap my sewing room and pottery workroom around. I'll have so much more space!!

    Ooops ... I see you are new here ... Welcome!
    You should post the question in a topic area so more people can see it and answer. It is easy to post there and add pictures.

    They are too heavy to flip over any pour the slip out? You could try getting a large syringe or turkey baster and suck the clay out.

    They are called press molds and were used all over the ancient world , old and new.

Obvara firing tomorrow. No kiln but a hopefully hot enough pit. Keep your fingers crossed please.

    try to get some air fanning it somehow. It will raise the temperature.

The reporter can't write for crap and she got virtually NONE of her facts right, but hey! Our Clay Club is in the newspaper! http://www.petoskeynews.com/graphic/clay-creations/article_d8271924-61d9-5be9-a0ab-7d6ca156f662.html?TNNoMobile

I had a fantastic day of lessons at the Neil Estrick Gallery. I think he saved my horrible lid issue ;)

I'm kinda peeved that this new job I took has been wiping me out so bad. My practicing and production (and thus, progress) have gone straight down the tubes as I come home from work sore and exhausted :/ Thank goodness it's only part time - I think I'd die if it was full time. *slump*

    Maybe take this time to sketch and note stuff you'd like to pursue when rested, or go just a few pots according to your energy.
    Dreamtime??.

    Maybe it's only in the beginning, when you still have to learn much on the new job.
