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...
I'm thrilled to have recently become a statewide juried member of The League of NH Craftsmen.

Hi Lou, this is the info I saw: I teach a clay class at McDaniel College , Westminster Maryland . We haven't used our Walker Pugmill in many years. It is in good shape. maybe a couple blades are bend but it runs and is ready to work. But I could not allow young students to operate it. All safety's are there but !!! I am thinking 1000.00 Ken Hankins, Shiloh Pottery . 410-239-8888 Seeya, Min
Fired my new kiln for the first time. One glaze still looks about the same o.0 Think I also messed up the cobalt carbonate.
posted some of the recent saggar firing results in my gallery.
