  1. I am out of porcelain.  I am out of clear glaze.  I do not want to mix more right now.  I discovered today that I need to change two elements due to glaze landing on them (I do not know how they have been firing so well) All signs are pointing towards hanging it up for 2017!

      This is my last day of work for 2017 too! One of my kilns needs new elements too, but it can wait for 2018. Time to put my feet up.

      Thank you ! The workshop was only 3 hours from where I live. That was a big plus.

      :>( I have a friend of a friend who has relatives in Denver who maybe,

      perhaps, might drive back from Wetumpka to Denver with some empty bowls. I might ask them anyway, even though they drove back 2 weeks ago. They should be back in 6 months or so. Good luck with your event.

  10. Making bowls for the Empty Bowl Fundraiser!

      Thanks all. This is only the 2nd time I have changed out elements, etc. Last year was a Mess! This year was so smooth. It worked like a trooper through the bisque firing.
