A Quick Update

Seems that life is always too busy. There are never enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done.

I have 5 sales coming up in November. Which means I need to have approximately 300 pieces finished for the end of October. As of today - I have about 25 pieces glazed and ready to go.
I also have another 100 pieces unglazed - and will probably run a couple of glaze firings in the next week or so.
And - I have about 25 pieces on the drying rack that aren't quite what we call greenware just yet.

So - that means in the next two weeks - I'll need to finish off at least another 50 pieces - then I can work on getting the other 100 pieces done before the last show in the end of November.

I can say for certain that it's going to be a difficult task.

I took this fella out of the kiln the other day. He has to be lustre fired yet - but, I thought I would test him to see how well he works.

If you look closely - (click on the picture to make it larger),
you can see the smoke coming out of his nostrils.

This is my only one - I'm hoping to get a few more done before November.

Back to the wheel.
