  3. I allowed someone into my studio on Christmas day...I don't do that. But I'm thinking that its going to be OK if I 'open up' a little more. Still processing that thought.

      Thanks all! Chilly, It could be. I was busy at that time feeding ill-parked reindeer :)

  7. My 20 cu ft Oval kiln has the lid off. The Hard wire is disconnected. Soon it will be ready to roll onto a container.

      That has to be an uncomfortable thing to do...good luck and safe shipping to you and your goods!

  8. Switching to double-thickness corrugated outer boxes today for shipping...for sanity's sake if nothing else (& being a good Santa).

  9. Finally launched Etsy Shop last week and had 1st sale this morning...not much, but it is a start! :)

  10. I had a small article posted in Ceramics Monthly, Tips and Tools page, December 2016. NO big deal but then Whooo Hoo!

  11. Exhausted. Must glaze on Sunday. Must fire on Tuesday. Must learn to say "no". :)

  15. Got some cement board, to replace the canvases in my classroom. Good Lord is that stuff heavy!

      Sassafrass-sle! Well, it is open and most of the tests were not very successful. At least I know what NOT to do :)

  17. I'm just now getting on the screenprinting bandwagon for transfers...and the CriCut option for making silkscreen masks is a game changer...yep, that's all I need...another ADHD design option #smh

  18. I've been asked to make some bisque molds for chili bowls...as persnickety as I am about trimming feet, trimming the bottom completely round may put me into therapy :)

      I survived, GlazeNerd...although I was Riesling-ing footer clay everywhere!

  19. Invited to do a pop-up show at 'last minute'...said, "OK" because it is less than a mile from home and will last only 3 hrs. I can do this :)

      ChenowethArts

      Well, I did sell one piece before the lightning and torrential sent everyone running for cover...its why I shy away from outdoor shows. :)

  22. It is glaze firing day...I seem to forget just how hot it can get in the kiln room when the outside/combustion air is coming in at 95F+. The pots are reducing and apparently so am I :)

      <-- Doesn't flash. Rarely runs. Cracks up occasionally. Bottom is too thick.
