    I now have a better understanding of just that, glazenerd. But, I actually enjoyed putting it all back together. I should mention that I also changed 2 timers, 2 power relays, 5 12 gauge wires and a power controller. I enjoyed it so much that I forgot how long it took to get parts and how hot the day was.
    But, it took a toll on my back and hamstrings. So I slept in, but then went and did an empty fire, as Marcia and Richard suggested. Then I made a 5 gal of my favorite base glaze and 5...

Did a Raku firing with my departing Art Club Seniors. For reduction, we used their old notes, papers and tests. Fun was had, minus the heat and humidity...

    Yeah, your heat is definitely worse that it is here. Walking outside yesterday, was like jumping into a pool. Instantly drenched.

Came across a video on YouTube of a "Ceramics Throw Down" show on the BBC. Here's hoping they bring that one to the US too. Link for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye4NT_j1d2U
