Carving words on pots. That's new for me. Can't use white out on my mistakes though!

    I draw/ write on printer paper first, that is roughly the size of my ware. I then lay it on the ware, and trace over the drawings on the paper, with a dull pencil or pen. It leaves a small indent, that can be easily smoothed. If it looks good, I go ahead with the actual carving.

Good results on our last glaze firing- Porcelain makes glazes come to life, very vivid color.. we even made some slip to test it on other clay bodies, results were just like the body itself.

I'm going to finish up all my owed pottery commissions, and delve into sculpture. I think it's time to spread my wings, and rise, blazing from the black ashes of the loss which consumed me.

    Dang right, you are! :) Just start small. Overburdening oneself from commissions will make you crazy! :)

Gotta love this time of year. Help students finish building their projects, go home to work on Christmas gifts, go back to school to fire the kiln, go home to work on gifts...

My best friend and I were at the Goodwill today, and I found a priceless treasure for $0.99...a beautiful, handmade porcelain rabbit ocarina. SCORE.

Got the cables replaced on my raku kiln. used a lubricant and a makeshift clothesline separator to keep the cables from twisting. All is well and super smooth. One hand can easily life the kiln chamber with the counterweight.
