The moment, when you just realized, that you forgot to ask a student, if they poked a vent hole in their intricate sculpture, that you are now firing...

    No worries. The student came in, and they vented it, through the mouth that was part of the sculpture.

    I try. This student though, extremely talented, and will spend hours on these incredible, subtle details. But sometimes, will ignore things that are the most obvious.

    Pulling is all about the feel. You have to do it a lot to get accustomed to using the appropriate amount of pressure. I've been experimenting with larger forms lately, and I've had to get used to applying ,more pressure than normal, to get all that clay up from the foot. I'm still not there, but getting better.

we still have highs in the 90s here and high humidity. I need to get firing lots of loads but slow drying and really hot. I have to wrap burnished pieces to avoid sweat from touching them.

    What do you wrap them with and are you protecting them from your sweat or theirs. Denice
