Car is packed and ready to drive to Touchstone tomorrow to get set up for my workshop. It promises to be about ten degrees cooler there!

    I DID IT! After about 20 test firings with tweaking of glazes, bisque firing, and glaze firing. I finally have glossy glazes that I am proud to say are mine. Not only that but I achieved some beautiful results. I also solved my black clay bloating issue at the same time. Only took 5 months of work.

Clay mixing time...every time I do this, I feel a little 'groggy'. 'Sorry, that's the best I can do on one cup of coffee :)

So, I went to the local dump to drop off some recyclables, and the dude running the place gave me a MOUNTAIN of fatty industrial BUBBLE WRAP for FREE! He's giving me EIGHT huge boxes of peanuts, too! My shipping's gonna be good for years! ^_^

    "Peanut Scrounging"...Why not ask the forum for ideas on where best to get free packing materials?

reposted our pics from Tuscany V. The group is sharing pictures like crazy on a Facebook page. They definitely bonded. They just are not CAD forum members.

Trying my best to make photography part of a regular routine rather than "that thing you do at the last minute"...#OldDog #NewTrick

    Mea has a great description of her photo booth setup on her blog. Very simple and her photos are very effective.

    I found you through that mug thread ... I love your work! Absolutely beautiful. I want to reach into the computer and run my fingers over all the carving and just look and look at everything. Also I'm quite pleased to find that the amount of surface decoration I use doesn't make me totally nuts. Or if it does, I'm in good company! ;)

    I know what you mean about waiting. I came in the kiln room at the college to find the cart with the plywood backing all charred. What happened? Uh, I think we opened the kiln too soon. The dept head and assistant were a little eager to see how the new glazes turned out!!!
