When you love your greenware but dislike your glazed ware. #confused

    At some point you have to commit to a process, including the glaze. Can be daunting because in some ways you are saying: this is who I am. When it comes to glaze, you could easily spend a lifetime searching.

    I was that way in college, and I still feel that way many times. I especially like the look of the clay, at the leatherhard stage, so smooth. Many times I even like the look of the prefired glazeware with the glaze marks I like, but know won't look much like that when fired...

    The issue is accepting that for me. Developing a work with two glazes seems nearly impossible in my mind. But I know I must commit. Maybe soon.

Out of the Earth, Into the Fire. On it's way to my house to be devoured by my brain.

    I read it when I was starting out formulating my own glazes. It's a great book.

    I had a good time. Main focus is building a small .5# shape that I can experiment with and spray glaze test on after I finish with the tile part of the testing. The bottle I have developed I think will work well for this.

Oh the joy of buying 15'' shelves, then getting home and they dont fit cause they are 15.5 inches and you have an L&L Kiln with element holders. DUN DUN DUN....

    what a shame that your nice pink respirator will turn very pale pink or even white!

    Whew... Done! Now I have blackish/grey kiln shelves. The corelite shelves held up a lot better than the cheap ones that I bought a while back. Those are like the ocean now. The corelite ones you can't even tell a grinder was on them. When I finished I patted my clothes off and it was a white dust storm. The sky was blocked and my dog yelped because she was scared of the sudden darkness.

SPRING WHERE YOU GO!? Just when I start enjoying spring and have my garage door open, a cold front comes in and I am back in the house hiding from my freezing studio and achy bones!

    It will be warm again this weekend. I'm sure the adult eagles are fine, probably laughing at us mere humans. Eggs will hatch in about two weeks. By then it might be summer :-)

Garage door insulation almost finished. It is already getting hot in there from my space heater + house door open. Literally could tell the difference in 1 hour.

    Very good Ron. We just got our first few flakes. The weather man said we might get two inches. Two inches slows the traffic, six inches shuts the town down.

    Two flakes stops the UK. We're not set up for regular snow. And that's fine with me.

    Chilly, that's how it is with California. Except it's two drops of rain that stops us in our tracks. We drove down to L.A. last weekend after rain and there were accidents on every freeway.

Just ordered garage door insulation. It's just too cold out there for my old bones. My heater warms it up a little, but now with the insulation I should be able to stay out there all day again!

    I got an electric kettle this year for the studio. It's great for heating fresh throwing water and I also heat water to clean my wax resist brush.

    My hands ache and burn when I go out there at night. During the day is fine. At night if I run a load of laundry in the dryer and use hot throwing water and wear layers it's not too bad.

Getting back into pottery this coming week. I haven't touched clay in almost 2 months now.

    Welp. Opened up some bags. Nice and moldy. Feels good to throw again. Started with a bowl as per usual.
