Load of Chalice and paten glaze out last night, popping popcorn and mailing out 5. kiln also had 20+ mugs and some medium sized bowls. I am trying the spray on route with the hazelnut, it was not perfect, but much better than most loads with it so far.

    Yeah, if not properly dried and firing too quick. My fault, but then it happens.

Back from NC, great conference considering everything. Looks like next year they are going to have 3 Japanese potters from Japan, and a tea master for an authentic tea ceremony. I can't remember the names, but it sounded like they should be pretty reputable. John you may know them if I could remember names. Very tired after the long drive.

    I don't usually look at "status" thjngs but happened to catch this. Yeah.... if you remember the names let me know. I'd be interested. We've got Matsuzaki Ken-san coming in to do a workshop (again ) for us at NHIA in the spring. It is an open to the public kind of register-for-it event... so if you are interested... let me know. best,............john

    I hope it's going well with your dad, my mother-inlaw is 90 and she can get pretty feisty. Her car has been in the shop and I have been driving her every where. She's a good driver, isn't use to being stuck at home and is getting a little frustrated. Denice
