Going to a woodfire for ceramics today. Its a 90 minute drive each way. I have no idea what to expect except that it should be educational.

    Very worthwhile even though they won't open it until Saturday because of everyone's work schedule.

    Best thing is there were 4 college professors that teach ceramics and one that has a Adult Ed class that is 30 minutes away from me. I'm waiting to hear back if there will be a summer offering or if I have to wait until the fall.

We just picked up our bees for three hives today. How sweet it is. Three queens and 10,000 helper bees each.

    At one time in mid 80s I sold honey in honey bears along with my pottery at shows

Drove to the studio just now and the guy that plows me out didn't show. On top of that, since I'm on a main road there is a 5' wall of plowed snow blocking the drive way.

    Thanks Nerd.

    This is a case that if the snow don't get me the traffic will. I need to wait for the guy to clear me out (if its not done already).

18" of snow so far and the storm still has at least 6 hours to go before tapering off to flurries

My Giffin Grip just arrived. I figured I'd best get this in while Mark C is away :)

    Well for the most part. Nothing broke and just one chip.

    Thanks for asking

I was offered my first commission from a friend yesterday and I politely turned it down. I then said I would be happy to let her come to our studio and show her how she can learn how to do it herself. She wants an animal shaped pincushion, I think I can show her how to do that.

    If you don't have a potters community you start one one person at a time

Having a studio 5 miles from home is a good way to prevent me from peeking in the kiln until its cooled down.

If all goes well tomorrow I'll be doing my first bisque firing. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    LOL Will do

    Everything came out fine and we started to glaze today, hopefully we'll be doing a glaze firing on Friday and peek inside on Saturday.

    Talk about cutting things close.
