We had a few seconds which is not bad considering the size of the kiln.
There are always a few pots that just go in another direction than you want them to, independent souls that they are.
But, over all we are pleased.
I spent my time sanding and pricing and sorting.
Pots for the store, pots for the show, pots for orders.
Next week we will set up for the 3rd. Celebration Of Seagrove Potters.
We set up in the old Luck's Bean Cannery on Highway 705.
The space is big and it has a roof!
I have heard there are potters who only do indoor shows.
I would like to be that potter- then again sometimes outdoor shows can be very nice.
We use to do one that was outside in July.
The weather could be rainy, hot as the dickins and humid as hell.
But- we sold pots.
Gosh you can put up with a lot if you are making some money.
Who's that down below you ask?
I also spent yesterday wandering back and forth to check the temperature of the electric kiln.
437.....finally around 3 pm which is as it should be it hit 259.
I thought - okay the lid is going up.
I feel pretty good about this for a first time large tile project.
There is some warping- but I think we can over come it.
If there was time I might redo two.
But the customer wants this up by the end of the month.
|Tray- a surprise from the kiln- better write this one down...|
|My sister Lee is working on sheep tiles- they are fun!|
Then again- we need to declare this a PJ day- who's with us??
Top of the morning to you all!
