I have been kept away from my a studio for almost 2 and a half months now but I finally got to glaze a fire work I made back in January. I again will be away from studio another month as I focus on other projects but I’ll be back and working hard in May.

Wedged up six for mugs, said screw that, and made six small bottle vases instead.  Satisfied with my decision.  Closest one to the left is my last and favorite out of them all.  

Meeting with a theater owner, later today about putting some of my work, in the Lobby/ where ever he has planned. Very excited for that. 

Bisque firing went well with one casualty, put a bowl that was too wet on the bottom, it busted. Had a feeling that it would happen so I did a slow climb. Did not help, oh well. I know better.

Holy crap. I just might be buying a kiln. Is this really happening?

For the longest time I’ve been talking about how I need a kiln to make my business actually profitable. My in-laws kind of shrugged it off as something for the future, maybe after I get a real job and make a bit more money….

Yay!!! someone help her find a kiln (if she wants used that is)

Not being able to make art feels like someone is holding their hand over your mouth so you can’t speak, and then maybe even tying your hands behind your back too.

Bad studio days

Two bad studio days in a row, not happy. bisque firing right now so far so good, but my throwing on the wheel today was completely unfocused, and all over the place. Giving up…
