I made a couple videos about the new burners on my kiln and the new batch of pots. I haven't fired since October, I had several bad experiences in a row that took me back to the drawing board. I think I have it figured out and I'm hoping to fire again here in a few weeks. A lot of these pots are getting sent out as very belated kickstarter rewards, but after that I'd like to get my etsy page up and running again.

It's strange to find a meaningful quote in such a strange place as the Gilmore Girls, but nonetheless I think Luke, the grumpy diner owner, said it best when his nephew dropped out of school to work at walmart and then criticized him for working in a diner:
“I own this business, kid! I built it, this is mine! I’m not at the mercy of some boss waiting and hoping to be chosen employee of the month for a couple extra hundred bucks and a plaque. I’m always employee of the month. I’m employee of the year, of the century, of the universe. You should be so lucky to have a job like mine.”
I like that it's not about the money, it's about the freedom and the pride of building something. "I built it, this is mine!" Indeed. I look forward to hitting it hard in 2015.
