Busy busy busy...

It's been a fantastic week. It started with a late night bisque firing Sunday night and the rest of the week was spent glazing, firing, doing 2 more bronze pours, and I got in a lot of gardening. The bronze pours are going really well. We're still tuning up the foundry layout and getting it outfitted for work flow and safety. The fun part is tyring to get a new crew of interested students drummed up.


I had 33 pieces go through the firing and I managed to not loose any pieces this time! Not only that, but everything came out fantastic! The optical effects of the GhostBlue and White Liner glazes is ammazing on this kiln load. The neighborhood florist promptly confiscated 6 of the vases, 3 cups have already been pulled for gallery submissions, and the rest of the ware is either for the local Potters Guild fall sale next month or for posting on Etsy.
It's more of the same next week, I can't wait! Gosh I love this job!
