A modem burnout 2 weeks ago really threw us for a stumble. It was easy enough to simply get a new one, but for some reason, the new one made for lots of new problems that took a huge amount of time and effort for our resident IT tech to sort through.
(Thank You Honey!!!!)
Tech dependant incomes have their lurking dark sides too!
The other big change for the house was a switch to homeschooling for our kids. I said it was a big change, but really it is a huge change! It but it’s proving to be a lot more fun than I thought it would be and the kids are making the adjustment amazingly well.
Here’s a few short recapping the past 2 weeks…
Attended the Art Auction opening for KVIE with Bruce Cadman. Great food and fun and by the end of the weekend my piece sold!
Had the lovely occasion to participate in a full kiln load of miscasts. This one is called a "cold shot". It's where the metal chills before filling the mould. The the others where "blowouts". This is where a crack in the mould opens up and the molten silver vents from the mold. This is also known as "God Dammit! I've just melted my vacuum hose lines!"
Cutting lots of stencils for this months ceramics run.
Trying something new.... enamels and lusters... oh my!
Started wadeing into getting the 120 bowls needed for the annual TideWater Art Gallery's Supper in Febuary.
65 down, 55 to go...
Working in collaboration with Bruce Cadman on a project heading back up to Sacramento... when is this due?
