      We could use some of that rain, not a drop in almost 3 weeks. Hitting high 90's everyday does not help.

  4. weather this week looks great for some contained firing.. No sparks.

  5. lost one of my dear little 4 legged friends today. He was a comic relief in life. Adios amigo, RIP

      Sorry to hear that, their lives are so short comparatively, and we miss them so much when they go.

  9. getting finished up on a commission, and getting some work fired and new ideas developing in the studio. Planning on working on Color development for my foil sagar firings. Material is at the post office for building my big raku kiln. Need to make bigger pieces for my galleries.

      how much clay?

      I am afraid if I use porcelain I would accidentally put in my puugger with stoneware. And that would be very very bad or very very good, LOL.

      What porcelain do you use?

    3. Marcia Selsor

      Marcia Selsor

      I am using Bray porcelain ^6 for glazed ware. For saggar firings I use Coleman, Babu, Nara. I have Nara for ^5 and ^10. I have some black clay I want to experiment with and I have some of Nerd's ^6 porcelain cream cheese. I mix my own raku clay but got some Piepenberg raku from a friend here. Too many types, but I do a lot of different tye firing.

  12. Happy 4th of July weekend. Rodeo in town and three parades this weekend.

      that is a good idea. I was working on cleaning and moving things to the storage area in the kiln shed. Always something needs to be done. Got some cinderblocks today for the base of my raku kiln and figured out partial weatherproofing for it.

  15. enjoying a mellow weekend together with my mate. I love sleeping with the windows open and the fresh mountain air breezes whispering across our heads. sleeping under a light blanket with our two little old dogs.Love being back in Montana.

      Would recommend listening to " Home" by Karla Bonoff. Think this song sums up those feelings.

  16. on my way to the hand specialist and stopping by the vet's for more meds for my very sick dog.

    1. Marcia Selsor

      Marcia Selsor

      yes. and my other ne had hip surgery for a dislocated hip that could not be put back into the socket. they do communicate but can't tell you where it hurts.

      Dogs sorta become your kids after awhile. And like kinds, very hard to watch them suffering.

      very hard and feeling helpless. Nitroglycerine seems to help during his worst moments at night. sitting out in the fresh mountain air and sunshine seems to help him the most.

      my Gen practitioner referred me to a Sports medicine place but called last night to follow up. She got me in to see the specialist coming to red lodge this friday. So that speeds things up.
