Moving along on Wednesday
I would love to just be carving tiles-am I crazy???
But I have to keep the pots going as well to help Mark fill up the kiln.
I love to warm up on bottles.
yesterday they all wanted to be nice and fat.
No problem for me I like a fat pot.
Seems to fit me.
While I am making bottles, plates and jars Mark is back to those "crown" Pots.
He does a lot of these in two pieces. Throwing the bottoms first and then capping them off with a second thrown piece.
You can see where he has started stamping the shoulder of this one. Next he will do the fluting.
The cap you see is for a nice tall, fat jar.
Today I might be able to creep up on him and shoot some while he is fluting the bodies.
And here is my side of the room.
Not as organized and I am sure you can see the chalk line down the middle of the room. There would be more room if we did not need things like heat and air...... which are on Mark's side of the room.
I have been thinking of ways to reorganizing my side and set it up different, but right now it is all I can do to learn how to put contacts in my eyes.
At my age learning to stick ones fingers in ones eye is a feat unto itself.
It takes me a good 20 minutes not to fold them in half while sticking them in my eye.
It I was 12 I think I would have no problems.
The good think about this is I can now see your face across the room.
I was having problems with road signs and face recognition and this seems to help that out. The trick is going to be learning to put these things in.
For a dollar I let you watch!
Off to make some pots-
