Bisque firing a load today!
Ordered my own glazes for the first time! I decided to give glazemixer.com a try - we'll see how it goes. I ordered Diana's Fake Ash, Jeannie's Purple, and the CAD ^6 Eggshell. Excited to get experimenting again!
Frustrated was unable to trim yesterday's practice. I need to remind myself porcelain is quirky. I you can't rush poreclain. It took substandard trimming on a few pieces before I realized. Then it took me way to long to switch gears and be productive. :(

So I have half of my inventory I hope to take to my first show of Spring is in the kiln bisque firing. About two thirds are new designs I hope will sell well.

I got a short tips session on throwing and trimming plates today while waiting in line to order my lunch! One of the local production potters I know was there with his family. He always gives good tips, too :)
Whyyyyy does learning how to throw plates have to be SO HARD!! I should totally be able to do this without all this practicing crap. Yup. Ok, back to practicing. UGH!

It probably doesn't help that all of my joints hate me right now, so the clay gets the better of me half the time. I made 3 that looked decent and didn't flop within 10 minutes. We'll see if I can keep it up.

Just one-third of the way through the term and my sanity may depend on the closest ball of stoneware I can get my hands on...gotta have a clay 'fix' soon!
Beautiful Outside- I should probably take my splash pan outside to clean it. (i just scrape it out in the winter because I don't want the clay water down the drain)

Hobbled out to studio (piriformis in spasm) spent a pain-free hour so absorbed in modelling new mug shape, hobbled back indoors for lunch
I just posted a funny image to this topic What Has Been Your Worst Re Encounter Of A Piece Of Your Pottery?
