House closing escrow, trying to ...oh it's just too complicated. Moving is a madhouse. Haven't done much clay lately.

    Get through this, resettle and then you can really enjoy clay time.

    I completely agree. It has taken almost 10 months and still not completely set up to full capacity in my shop. Two largest kilns not functional yet.

I painted today: put a layer of gold craft paint on my scuffed up paint-splattered Birkenstocks, yay! Everything going to hell in a handbasket otherwise.

Really need to work on something, but slaving night and day to get my house ready for sale. Have to set a couple hours by for art, I'm feeling it's loss. (Of art, not the house ^^)

Right now all I can think about is my impending move out of state. Surrounded by piles of small bisqueware and no means to fire it. Argh!

Stoneware in the kiln at the college, should have a couple pieces to pick up soon, then a bit more later. I'm thinking about taking the summer class too, it was a good experience.

Last pottery class this week, got my raku back, meh. Folks felt such a connection someone suggested we meet again next wk to pick up and glaze our final works outside of class time. I have some stoneware left to glaze. Maybe I'll finally make/get a successful mug with my own hands.

    First throwing class, saved nothing til the last construction week-9 pots. Mugs, still have the first in parents home-terrible reminder of wonderful first days on the wheel, Look at it and remember fondly even though the pot is for crap.

    I still have all my wheel thrown wares, from my first Ceramics class. The bowls aren't too bad, the mugs on the other hand... As my instructor noted on one of them, "Well, that's insulated!"

Spent way too long in pottery lab decorating and attaching handles. Went in bright-eyed, left grumpy and tired. They better not be garbage when they come out!

(*rewrite) -3rd pottery class last night. None of my work worth mentioning had been bisqued so I sat out the stoneware glazing to practice on the wheel. Bummer. Going back in to make some handles today.

    Wheel practice more important than glazing anyways. Don't fret! = )

3rd pottery class last night. To my disappointment none of my greenware had been glazed so I sat out the glazing demonstrations at the wheel practicing cylinders. Going back in to put handles on them today.
