18" of snow so far and the storm still has at least 6 hours to go before tapering off to flurries

SPRING WHERE YOU GO!? Just when I start enjoying spring and have my garage door open, a cold front comes in and I am back in the house hiding from my freezing studio and achy bones!

    It will be warm again this weekend. I'm sure the adult eagles are fine, probably laughing at us mere humans. Eggs will hatch in about two weeks. By then it might be summer :-)

I will be gathering quite a few of these: https://goo.gl/images/NGXZn7. Think they would be good for small amounts of glaze materials? They even come with their own scoops.

    Had quite a bit of time in the hospital. On the plus side, I came up with a few pages of concept sketches for wares.

Ordered a 3D printer kit. So I will assemble it and make a clay stamp. Probably take about a week to get it.

    My son bought a broken one at the DAV and fixed it. Wore it out and fixed it again. Then it was broken in a move and he had to fix it again. They took it to the remote island they live on so they can print our anything they need.

    3d printers are so awesome. My son wants one so bad. Hope it goes well for your mark.

loaded a bisque and will fire on Sunday-mowed 1/2 acre of wet grass-over 50 inches so far on rain since Oct 1st

    You lucky dog, my son asked us to get rid of extra stuff around the house, he didn't want to deal with it when we died.

I was able to help a new friend today with computer stuff. Hopefully, she will dazzle everyone with some of her pottery pieces.

Stopped at a lighting store yesterday and picked up a variety of pendant light shades. Mold time for highly translucent crystalline glazed shades.

    By early summer I should be making my first pieces. Have to make some molds, and a wheel chuck as well.

    Destroyed it deliberately, pushing the clay, as I didn't like what I'd made, so just kept on until it became a tornado.

    I destroy about 95% of what I make. I have a whole shelving unit full of stuff I am going to hammer and trash next week. Keeps me on my toes!

I've been chomping at the bit to get outdoors, clear my creative head...so, after a few delays, my wife was sick (better not go yet) and so on and so forth I finally made it out on the road at 3am Wednesday morning (insert happy face here). The road was empty and conditions were clear, the drive up to lovelock was easy as 6 hour drives go and the gnawing pain on the left side of my lower back was tolerable. I checked into the casino at 9 in the morning and they had a room ready right away...

that lab is slow. I think I'm stuck behind a big order they're working on. I'll show pictures of the new glaze as soon as I pass the tests!

    If they're running Dean Starks, or anything else related to core, you're probably not their priority right now. You'd likely get faster service in the summer.
