finally, geez.

My apologies for the lack of recent content. I haven't had much going on in the studio lately and this week was the first week on the wheel for my ceramics1 students. It can be a bit exhausting between running around and helping them and making sure that there was enough clay prepared for 25 students to make zillions of cylinders. I'm not complaining, just stating that it can take a lot out of you.

I was supposed to fire today but upon laying in bed last night and stressing about wether or not I had enough wood prepared I decided to go scrounge up some pallets this morning and fire tomorrow(saturday). Luckily for me I found 3 truckloads of wood, I guess pushing it back a day was a good decision. I also discovered that the builder that I used to get most of my wood from has 5 houses going up in the next couple weeks, that's a load of my shoulders, and maybe 2+ firings of wood. I'm excited to finally not have anything left between me and the firing. I'll report back tomorrow evening and let you know how the firing went.

Cheers!

I'm trying to play catchup on my reading. You've been VERY busy.

Can't wait to see the new pots.
