    must give you a smile and a burst of energy to have such vibrant equipment. I know just giving my workroom a thorough cleaning makes me more energetic : )

Waiting round for my new wheel to be delivered. What better than to order The Kiln Book while I wait :D Note to self, remember to cancel amazon prime before I have to pay.

June will be recorded as a bust for me in terms of clay production, but I will have a great pond to sit by as I work...anxious to get my hands muddy again though.

    Are you in an area that got lots of rain. Kansas is getting a lot of rain maybe enough to get us out of the red drought zone. Denice

    Denice, Nothing in Nashville like the rain that Kansas and other parts of the mid-West received, but we have had enough for my benefit.

Be proud of me, guys! I just trashed some work I wasn't happy with, even though it was "good enough". Big step for me!

    One of the most humbling lessons to learn it to recycle that which is just-"alright".

Anybody with a Skutt wheel used the cuphead plaster batt system and is it any good?

    Well I have purchased a skutt and very excited for it arriving on Wednesday :DD
    Now I have a big hole where my money once was but it will be worth it when 20 years down the line it is still going strong.

    Well, you can pull several long, consistently thick handles, and then cut them into small sections to fit on the smaller wares. I guess it all depends on whether not you are keeping them, in which case your desired vessel-type will dictate the need for a handle. Or, if they will just be recycled, in which case get some handle practice, while you can.
