Well Mark had to point out to me that the vase on the left side of the picture posted below was missing a tad of glaze, just under the handle.
Whoops, we touched that up before it went in the kiln today.
The other vase on the right hand side is something Mark is playing with.
I am saying play away.
He went to a workshop last month on making handmade brushes with Kent Mclaughlin from Fork Mountain Pottery.
Mark use to fly fish and tie his own flies. This lead to making brushes and sometimes pins for me and our daughter Anna.
Mark's brushes did not make it out of the fire.
And fire is not kind to brushes. They all looked like a bad hair day.
Mark came home with some nice brushes and has been " playing" with them.
He needs a bit more down time to really work into their use.
And, we are looking at other satins to use.
So far this is just a black slip base stain, if that makes sense.
And good or bad, I will post it up after it comes out of the kiln.
The other exciting news today is when we walked out the door the painters were busy painting the building.
It feels really good to see the building with this fresh look.
It feels like the last thing that we needed to do to finish the building.If there is anything we have forgotten it just does not come to mind.
I told the guys doing the painting that the building looked so pretty!
Which made them all smile,
The head guy told me this is gonna be one "spiffy" looking building.
You know, I think he's right.
