Running Towards the Flags

I'm in the final 4 days before the "Souper Supper" event. Boy, this project really tied-up my time over the past week and a half. Now I'll be playing catch-up for at least a week. The last 110 bowls was a marathon of glazing and firing using my trusty old Paragon for 2 loads of cone 6 firings and 1 load of cone 10 gas reduction. There were a good number of jewels and only a half dozen of duds so I'm going to chalk this one into the win column... Now it's time to sort and pack everything up.


OxBlood and Helmers wash in reduction

Gorgeous bowls... the LAST 110 bowls??? How many did you make?

I wish we had something like that in Des Moines, I've yet to find a Souper Supper or the like for fundraising.
