Friday, a friend brought his issue of Collectors Guide to Indian Pipes over, and the day was spent making Iroquois Tulip and Trumpet pipes, and one Creek pipe. Was able to use my new burnishing stone from Wisconsin. It makes great striations in Indian bowls.:)

    Great project, what kind of rock is your burnishing stone? I have never found one in Kansas that I am totally happy with.

I'm watching a Skutt kiln on the Govdeal website. It looks in fantastic shape, and is dirt cheap at the moment. Anyone used the site before? I'm just wondering how much it will jump the last day?

    Well, it's jumped nearly $100 in a day. We'll see what the final hours bring...

    No go. I tried bidding towards the end, but it kept jumping. Someone got a nice couple thousand dollar kiln for under four hundred.
    I'll just have to keep watching. I've seen others come up, in the same area before. The rich school districts seem to dump good kilns, for new fairly often.

    Most forecasts show mid 40 to low 50. Heavy rain on Thursday. Night time temps just above or at 32F. Looks like I will have a rain coat, hat, and winter coat. I get cold.

    Thanks. Is there still snow on the ground? I looked at a webcam last week and there was a lot. Raincoat and layers.

It's 3:50am. I'm wide-awake. It's cold outside. Shall I go and play with real clay, or just YouTube?

i am proud to be an oldlady. though not very ladylike, i like the fact that i am old. since i died on an operating table at the age of 33 i have made a lot of pots, some good, some OK. i hope i have hammered the rest. still a beginner, will always be a beginner, every blob of clay can become anything and so is a beginning.
