A heads up, to those up North. There are several kilns and wheels up for bid on Govdeals. Also, for anyone in Arizona, there is a front load Paragon kiln.

    The one in AZ looks good. There is a 40 cf alpine in UT also looks great

Ummm, did anyone lose some posts? I made a couple comments last night and this morning, and they no longer exist. Unless I'm imagining it all. Is this something to do with the update that was mentioned a while back?

    Thought I was going crazy there for a minute. I was wondering if I said something the administrators didn't like.

    I thought it had something to do with my short term memory problem...but realized it was just something to do with my short term memory problem :)

    LOL I thought the same thing as Denise so I reworded my post about insurance ... I thought someone saw it as a sales push for Progressive insurance (you can NOT sell insurance across state lines unless you are licensed in that state)

A mug a made five years ago, for my brother broke a couple months ago on the handle. I saw it in person this past weekend. It was not at the attachment point, so not sure what happened.

    Also, I still really like the glaze combination I used, but it's a little "heavy" and the foot ring too sharp. Live and learn...

    You make it sound like cats ever stop shedding. Our's gets blocked out of my work shop, when I have a bunch of things going. She is too nosey, sheds everywhere, and steals my sponges.

A freight train derailed nearby, no major damages. But they spilled some sodium bicarbonate and soda ash. I wonder if they need help cleaning it up?...

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?

    Benzine you live close pick it up for a song-sell your other one.

    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.

Hmmmm... Just realized I haven't updated this in a while. Not much really to update. It's unnecessarily cold and snowy here.

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...

Making some jars as gifts, but couldn't work on them the last couple nights, and I have Parent/ Teacher Conferences tomorrow. So it's like caring for plants. I water them, so they don't dry out, otherwise, they just sit there...

    Oh no Crusty, I'm not falling for that again. Last time I did that, not only did they not get any bigger, but the fumes they gave off, when fired, were nasty!... But on the plus side, the fumes gave me the ability to taste colors.....
