    Camping, kayaking, family, travel, Art in general. I have a small studio in my garage. Two electric kilns, two wheels, wedging table etc. I am primarily interested in cone 6 Ox. but like to see what is going on at all ranges. Read about ceramics voraciously and love the feel of the clay and throwing. Have to admit that my greatest joy is in the making, not the glazing. That said I do mix my own glazes, some of my own formulas, some borrowed. Retired from teaching art, in 2009 after 36 years, taught ceramics 34 of those years.

  1. Started a firing last night, something told me no right. I turned it off and waited til it cooled but, not before I noticed top coil was not firing. Later found that the SC-20 fuse on the right side on top layer was blown! No replacements until this morning with a walk to Ace Hardware. Firing now

      I am  glad you listen to your gut,  I get  gut feeling also.   I almost lost a lot of money not listening to my gut.   It was a big decorating job  of a well know local celebrity.   They had fired the decorator and wanted me to take over the job.  I didn't want to do it  but friends and relatives talked me into it.  Before I had any time or money invested in it they decided to give the last decorator another chance.  I was so relieved,  later in the year I found out that they didn't pay any of their subcontractors.  I could have lost $50,000 on a job like that.   I don't let anyone talk me in to something I have a bad gut feeling about anymore.    Happy birthday,  I will be 67 October 15.   Denice
