This morning I was going to go right in the studio and get down on those last tiles for the back splash.
I knew right where I left off and thought I could just knock those out.
But to tell you the truth after loading the kiln yesterday, which makes for a long day, I was moving slow and dallied around in the house until about 9:30- then I had to take a walk up the drive to place the open sign out.
It was a beautiful day today and that always makes it harder to head inside.
I looked and looked online last night.
I would find something I wanted and the cost was right but the shipping would be a bit too high.
I could buy one for under 15.00 but then the shipping was 10.00- that just raised the price to 25.00.
I decided I was going to cut some twigs and see if I could make something.
As I was playing around with the twigs Mark comes in and gives me some advice, shows me how to use his drill press- pretty cool- to drill the small holes for the wire.
I put them both together and then realized I could have used the drill to drill holes all the way across...
Well this just means I get to make another one-right?
Don't look too close.
I hope to get a little better on the wrapping.
I do think they hold some promise.
I used some fishing stuff to hold the pendents but I think I need to work on how I want that to work.
I would like to be able to just clip off the pendent if someone is interested in buying one or trying one on.
I think I want to look at a larger size.
Mark says I will have to go on to the deep sea fishing stuff to get a larger clip thingy- escapes my brain what these things are called right now.
Again shows some promise.
I did glaze through the afternoon and then played some more with these before I headed in.
Mark is out there firing the gas kiln and me- I am going to stretch out and pretend I am doing something important besides checking my eye lids for holes.
BUT WAIT!- I have to tell you that Connie Norman has posted an interview with me out on her blog.
It has been such a pleasure to meet another potter/blogger.
I have admired Connie's work for some time now and getting to meet her, if only through email for now, has been great.
