    JohnnyK got a reaction from glazenerd in Hi All y’All…Just wanted to let you know that I’m going in for hand surgery in a coup   
    All went well with the surgery now that all my fingers have gotten normal sensation. Up until about 10PM last night I was concerned because the ring finger was still numb and I thought there might have been some nerve damage, but sensation started to return before I went to bed. This morning, everything is about as normal as can be expected after a surgery. It will be about a month before I can resume normal everyday activities.

    Do you mean C05?    C5 would be nearly impossible to do a proper glazing on the pot.

    Way to go Lee! By then I should have my testing done on sealants for the interior of raku pots and vases. I'm going to be trying rubber based materials like clear FlexSeal to see if I can waterproof my horsehair and other raku pieces...

    You're not dealing with "drying" as much as absorption...once you've poured out the excess slip, depending on the wall thickness of your piece, it should release in about 30-45 minutes...leaving it right side up will help with drying the inside of the piece.

    JohnnyK reacted to preeta in Hey! Welcome back, Preeta! I missed your contributions. What are you up to now?   
    Awww thank you guys. Just have had a lot going on. Mainly my teenage daughter's medical issues. Just trying to find answers which we are close to finally after suffering for 5 years.  
    Taking a principals of cooking class (3 hours straight standing and cooking. I loved every minute of it but it was only on the way back home the exhaustion would hit me) , starting a garden at a community plot plus working more. 
    I've taken all the community college classes in clay so now I volunteer to keep using the lab. So I have had no free time.  Plus i really got into researching the political world. I had to leave that now because it got too depressing (But thanks to Vaclav Havel i havent lost hope) and so I'm back here.  
    Clay is my first love and you guys are a great bunch to hang out with. I've missed the clay talk. So I've come home.  
    I love this sense of community. I found that in culinary and gardening as well as clay. 
    Eeh one day I'll have the guts to post pictures of my work.  I've got the form to where I like it but now am working on the skin I'd like to complete my work. I love our gas kiln. I've also finally accepted who I am as a potter. Which influence I want to show more. My political research helped me with that. I was grateful to find my voice of protest through my pottery. Now finally as a potter I am at peace.

    Hey--don't knock it. Having a money job to fuel and support your dream job is smart--creativity put into practice throughout your endeavors.   Add business card/letter holders--people love them as gifts for people who have a desk at work or for their retail store card at the cash register.  Trust me on this!
