Results from Ms. B

Results from Ms. B were mixed.
We had some good, some bad and some indifferent.
Most of all we had the thought of, " let's do this again."
And, use some of what was learned to proceed forward.
This was better than the thought of, "let's just tear her down...."

Everyone gets to pick a favorite, this one was mine.

I also love these  bottles.
Mark is not sure why, but I do.
 These tumblers are just perfect and are calling out to be filled up and used.

Here she sits waiting for us like a spider waits for a fly.....
There is much to think about here.

Oh, girl...

 We hope you are fine when you get finished burning up these pots.
Mark is out there now finishing up his day with Ms. B.
As far as I can tell there has been no real problems between the two of them.
Fingers crossed that something good comes out of this relationship.

Mark made, glazed and fired this with out me as I was working on some tiles that needed to be made, glazed and fired.
It was interesting to split our work and go different directions for awhile.

There are times I wonder as we move into a new phase of working if this will become more of the norm for us.

Mark has several glaze test in this firing that he as interested in trying.
I look forward to seeing how they worked in this kiln.

I am not sure on how long this will have to cooled, but I am sure we will share the results with you.

I thought I would try growing some of these in the woods on the front side of the house.
What do you think?
Do you think we should plant a row?

The weather has been fabulous.
 I hope that we are all having some signs of spring.
