Didn't sleep well last night. All those bowls in the studio kept yelling, "Trim me, trim me!' ...and so began the pre-dawn saga (at least after a cup of coffee).

    I'm off to do the same thing after breakfast. It wasn't the clay,bthough. I woke when my son informed me of a mysterious puddle in the living room. (Fortunately just water)

    I wish I could trim, dangit. Still in denial about my bone-dry predicament. *facepaw*

    I know, when I see a new person I always go to see what they've made. I was surprised at how many people don't have ANY pictures shared at all. LOL I had three albums by the time I'd been on here two days!

Made a step toward the second Community Challenge...it is good for me to have a focus, something I had been finding fuzzy lately.

A little cooler weather is on the way...'sounds like a good excuse to do a bisque firing.

    I use the same reasoning in the summer. In the winter I fire when it gets a little warmer.

...that moment when you realize your hard work got uncovered somehow before you were able to trim it... ;.;

    Hahaha! I keep saying I gotta hire a studio monkey to wedge clay for me, but now the job apparently includes cleaning up after my derpy moments. :D

Yesterday, I saw a pug that was so happy and excited, he was walking at a 45-degree angle against his harness. Sideways Pug got me thinking that I should put more pugs on my pottery. Been kind of running short on ideas...

Am I the only one to receive offers to give a one to one free workshops to total strangers?

    I get request all the time. I get kind of offended because they act like they can learn in 4 hours the knowledge I have acquired over 40 years.

    I'm from Europe and didn't get any offers. Should I be offended? Embarassed? Left out? ;-)

    No offers for me either, but when I was an IT trainer, I did "at-desk" training and the department finance guys would get upset that we charged the participant plus any colleagues who gathered around and watched. Our answer was that if you got on a bus and your friend was "just coming with you", they too would have to pay!

That moment when you run out of the slip you need...and realize that it simply will NOT mix itself. Yes, I am there now.

    I mixed some dark red clay slip last night. Got it just right ... then proceeded to spill half the container all over my work table, chair, and floor. I wiped and cleaned and there is still a crime scene in my studio. >.< Guinea: Can you mix it in the driveway? ;)

    I've used slip before but now heavily rely on black iron oxide stain. The iron oxide is used to bring out detail and imperfections.

    I was using red oxide but it's so messy if you don't want it on the whole item ...

Just ordered a bunch of glaze materials. Tons of testing in my future! I love TESTING! Trying to find glaze combination I want for all my wares.

    That's the second time a spam-type name has left this exact message to a T. It's spam. :(

    Guinea, if you think you see spam, report it to a moderator and let us decide. We do not think this is spam.

Well, the presentation on pottery is over, and I hope its the last. Now I can get on to more important things like pottery to fire and post in the gallery. I do better demonstrating than public speaking.

I love using soy wax. It burns cleaner. And it make me hungry, lol, JK. But it is smokeless.
