The week in Facebook.

I'm back in the studio getting geared up for firing XVII.  I am dedicating at least 1/2 of this firing to experiments and new ideas.  A risky venture but...risk big, win big. 

The tools.

Freshly thrown cups, a new shape.

Jug handle.

Local red slip.

My results from the weekend. 

Kaolin slip over local iron slip.  This will get an ash glaze all over.  The red slip melts at cone 10...was it a wise choice to put it underneath a kaolin slip?  We shall see.


Now that I'm back in the zone I'll be out of town for 4 days. 

Cheers y'all!

Just hold on.

Not many pots this summer...but lots of good music.  This is one of my favorite songs, I find applicability on so many levels.
