March 2010 - Random Thoughts

3/4/2010 - February gone and into March already - where do the days go? Have several large platters drying - should be ready to bisque by the end of the weekend. Still contemplating shino glazes. Got 2 little bowls out of the last kiln with Penn State shino over 2 different slips that are nice. The rest went the way of the hammer. House painting project will be done by tomorrow when new carpet gets installed. Camping in chaos for a month is not my idea of a good time. This is my cat Schizo on the new carpet.


3/7/2010 - Glazed a dozen of the porcelain pots yesterday with different shinos. Hope to finish them today. Dusting of snow this morning.

3/12/2010 - Back to work in the studio today- most of the house is put back together from the painting and flooring projects. New couch and chair coming next Tuesday.

3/16/2010 - Bisque load fired yesterday. And the weather is finally decent. New furniture comes this afternoon. I will start glazing large pieces today - maybe a glaze firing at the end of the week. Can't even remember what is in the bottom of the bisque kiln at this point.

3/17/2010 - All the bisque washed off and bottoms waxed. Now to glaze all of them.

3/22/2010 - Glazing is like an endless dish washing. 7 more pieces to go.

To April '10
