I'm back from my weekend at the Llano show. The sales were very good considering how small the show is. We did quite well and the show far exceeded our expectations but strangely enough we sold only larger pieces...usually at these small shows it's nothing but cups and soup bowls...which is mostly what I took with me and then had to turn around and bring home. That's okay though, I'm just about out of large jars and platters now so it's nice to make those knowing that I need them. Speaking of which... I made a bunch of platter/bowls today of varying size.
I'm doing a show in Rockport on the 4th of July weekend. Rockport is down on the coast, near Corpus Christi and Port Aransas. I'm doing a firing right before we head down there that will be full of glazed work. I have nothing but slipped work right now and it doesn't sell too well near the ocean so I'm going to try to have a chunk of the ash glazed work to take with me. Speaking of ash glazes... I have figured out that putting the ash glaze over a white slip that has a good bit of silica in it makes the glaze look better in the wood kiln, that was kind of a "duh" moment for me.
That is all I have for now, I haven't replaced my camera cable yet so no photos...maybe tomorrow.
